The performance of natural, mechanical and hybrid ventilation systems was monitored, using the tracer gas decay method, in three typical apartment buildings locatedin two street canyons, during summer period 2002 in Athens.
Niachou, K.; Santamouris, M.; Hassid, S.
In summer 2007 a housing project will be build, reachablewithin 20 minutes by car from Granada. It contains33 single family houses , 21 apartements and 40 dwelling units social housing.
Pankratz, O.; Avila, L.M.; Buxbaum, C.; Seiler, A.
Automated living and working environment is becominga commonly used service. The present paper deals with a dynamically automated control of shading in buildings during mid-seasons.
Kosir, M.; Kristl, Z.; Krainer, A.
The present paper describes the beginning of a sustainablerequalification program devised for some buildingsof the University of Brasilia, located in the city of Brasilia (latitude 15o south).
Romera, M.
Wind speed characteristics in the centre of a city differthan the ones in its suburban. Street canyon effects result in weak airflows in the centre of highly dense citiesbecause of the combination of inertia and gravitationalforces.
Santamouris, M.; Georgakis, C.
This paper describes the possibility of high-temperature radiative cooling combined with natural ventilation.
Iwamatsu, T.; Yoshino, H.; Kataoka, E.; Shukuya, M.
It is difficult to design indoor environment under natural ventilation because there is insufficient knowledge to evaluate the effect of the natural ventilation space quantitatively.Especially, natural ventilation rate is not yet fully understood.
Nishizawa, S.; Sawachi, T.; Habara, H.; Seto, H.
The aim of the Pythagoras project was the development of an innovative national training material in the sector of indoor environmental quality.The need for education in this specific sector is dictatedby the significant indoor environment deterio
Papaglastra, M.; Santamouris, M.; Mouriki, E.; Geranios, A.; Mihalakakou, G.; Matthopoulos, D.; Deligiannakis, I.; Tsezos, V.; Doulka, E.; Papadopoulos, A.; Giama, E.; Aristotelis, A.; Stavrakakis, G.; Nicolaou, T.; Kolokotsa, D.; Kephalopoulos, S.
Temperature, relative humidity, pressure difference across the floor and microbial concentrations were investigatedin the four buildings which had either concrete floor (1 piece) or wooden floors (3 pieces) and crawlspaces.The temperature followed
Kröger, T.; Vepsäläinen, K.; Reiman, M.; Keskikuru, T.; Halonen, R.; Kokotti, H.
In this article, the first part of a research project about the modelling of a solar chimney is presented.
Lanceta, D.; Llorente, J.
Regular air tightness and infiltration measurements were performed in forty houses, in the area of Attica, Greece. Two measurement methods were used, the tracer gas decay method and the Blower Door tests method.
Sfakianaki, K.; Pavlou, K.; Assimakopoulos, M.N.; Santamouris, M.; Leivada, I.; Karkoulias, N.; Mamouras, J.
The growing energy consumption for cooling of buildingsis one important concern in Mediterranean countries.Natural ventilation plays an important role as passive energy saving strategy, regarding cooling of buildings in this climate.

The management of indoor air quality is accomplished by various types of complex mechanisms related to indoorenvironment and recently, an integrated solution applying state of art technology is being presented pertainingto the management of indoor
Lim, S.; Lee, H.; Choi, W.; Song, I.; Yu, J.
The purpose of ventilation is to dilute indoor contaminantsthat an occupant is exposed to. In a multi-zone environment such as a house, there will be different dilutionrates and different source strengths in every zone.
Sherman, M.; Walker, I.S.
In Part 1, the changes in wind pressure coefficient distributionon the surfaces of the buildings when building coverage is varied are evaluated and identified, and it is elucidated that the ventilation through skylight is effectivebecause the surf
