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

Numerical and experimental results concerning the emission of a tracer gas (N2O) inside a naturally ventilatedgreenhouse are presented and analyzed.
Kittas, C.; Katsoulas, N.; Sapounas, A.; Bartzanas, T.
Multi zone computer simulation is used to predict the concentrations of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and water vapour in a flat and detached house, fitted with five different ventilation systems all of which comply with current bu

Building industry is often regarded as a mature and traditionalsector, in which the technological development is not so accelerated as in other cases.The increasing costs for electric energy, heating and climatization,the dramatic environmental is
Giorgiantoni, G.; Finizio, D.
For a high density city, given the need to accommodate a fix amount of building volume, what can one do to optimise the benefits of the natural (air) environment?
Ng, E.
This study aims at examining the reduction of indoor air contaminants by plants placed in an indoor space.Field measurements were performed using Aglaonema brevispathum, which were verified as air-purifying plants by NASA.Two conditions for the am

In Heerlen, the Netherlands, warm and cold water volumesfrom abandoned mines will be used for heating and cooling of buildings, based on a low exergy energy infrastructure.
Roijen, E.; Op 't Veld, P.; Demollin-Schneiders, E.
Measurements of indoor pollutants have been performed in 50 residences in Athens. The concentration of CO2, CO, TVOC’s and PM2.5, PM10 has been measured.
Santamouris, M.; Argiroudis, K.; Georgiou, M.; Pavlou, K.; Assimakopoulos, M.; Sfakiaraki, K.
Design guidelines for natural ventilation in buildings normally focus on the potential hourly air change (ACH) rates based on the building space parameters.
Horan, J.; Finn, D.
The use of windows is a key adaptive opportunity in naturally ventilated buildings especially in summer when the building is likely to be free-running.

It has been widely recognised that too few projects initiatedunder both national as well as EU funded research projects find their way to commercial exploitation.
Krell, K.
The paper deals with applicability of passive and low energy cooling technologies in the Czech Republic.In the paper there are presented two recent studies, where computer simulation helps to design properly the passive and low energy cooling for
