The evaluation of thermal comfort conditions in simplified urban spaces: the COMFA+ model | 2007 | English
One of the main elements to consider in urban space design is the modification of the microclimate in order to improve the thermal comfort conditions of people livingin urban spaces.Sometimes it is very important to design very specific conditions
Human has developed a board rang of passive cooling techniques in various parts of the world up to a very impressive level of maturity: cliff dwellings through the world (ground cooling), wind towers (convective and mass cooling), sprinkling water
The case study in question is that of the refurbishment of a building constituted by four school pavilions built in the post-war period of the 20th Century with very lightweight reinforced concrete arches and vaults.
The buildings’ environment plays a very important role in health matters and the quality of life. A series of experimental measurements were carried out in the residential sector of the greater region of Athens.
Interpreting Building Simulation modelling data for Building Designers, with specificreference to the cooling demand | 2007 | English
The paper describes a method to show how Building Simulation data can be interpreted to provide informationthat is of use to non-Building Simulation experts involved in the design of low energy Buildings.The method uses a heat balance simulation t
The impact of different window configurations, natural ventilation and solar shadingstrategies on the indoor comfort level in simple rooms, in Mediterranean area. | 2007 | English
which is a typical residential building in the South MediterraneanSea. The house type is also representative for second home.
Thermal comfort under transient seasonal conditions of a bioclimatic building in Greece | 2007 | English
This paper presents the thermal comfort levels in a bioclimaticbuilding situated in the greater Athens area in Greece.
Macroclimatic forces have been important factors ever since man first constructed shelter.
Case study of the weighed factors of stack effect and the reduction alternatives in tall complex building | 2007 | English
The purpose of this case study is to analyze stack effect problems and to develop the method minimizing stack effect in the tall complex building in the winter season. The main problems in tall complex building occur in high-rise elevators.
Ventilation of Dutch schools presently insufficient; an integral approach to improvedesign | 2007 | English
Indoor Air Quality and thermal climate in schools is problematicin many countries. The status quo in the Netherlandsis presented (e.g. average CO2 levels in schools, problems with ventilation).
Residential active cooling toward snowy cold region in japan andhuman temperaturesensitivity for passive and low energycooling | 2007 | English
Results of survey on residential active cooling as the diffusion rate of air conditioner in five principal cities of in Japan, and those associated “human temperature sensitivity” for passive and low energy cooling are described.
Knowledge extraction from energy certification of buildings – Results from the ENPER-EXIST project | 2007 | English
The ENPER-EXIST project was initiated and coordinated by Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment (CSTB) within the framework of the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) programme.
For the assessment of air to air heat recovery systems in ventilation systems, efficiency seems to be the major evaluation parameter, although other parameters such as pressure drop, frost behavior and power consumption of fans can play an importa
To predict ventilation and related air flow parameters, a lot of calculation techniques could be utilized; however the main difficulties concern ease of use and the providingof input data.
Optimal indoor air quality, thermal comfort and energy conservation in schools is of great importance. A new development in indoor climate control in schools is hydronicradiant heating and cooling (HRHC).
The objective of this paper is to evaluate the usefulness and the accuracy of an artificial neural network (ANN) as a prediction tool of the wind pressure coefficient (Cp). The ANN is applied to predict the Cp for rectangularbuildings.
Due to the lack of national building regulation regardingthe energy requirements of Directive 2002/91/EC (EPBD) in Greece, Southern countries (Italy, Spain and Portugal) have been selected as index reference because of the similar climatic conditi
Exergetic evaluation of high-temperature radiative cooling combined with natural ventilation | 2007 | English
This paper describes the possibility of high-temperature radiative cooling combined with natural ventilation.
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.
