This paper gives the status on the regulation on ventilation in the different regions of Belgium for residential and non residential buildings.
Prieus, S.; Heijmans, N.; Delmotte, C.; Van den Bossche, Wuyts, D.
A radiant heating applied to floor, so called'Ondol', is a traditional heating method in Koreaand has been widely used.
Hwang, W.-J.; Kim, Y.-M.; Sohn, J.-Y.
In this study, field measurements andinvestigations have been carried out tounderstand the energy consumption and indoorenvironment of a sustainable designed officebuilding.

Energy-efficient building design often makes use of night-time ventilation or thermal slab activation. The quality of the design tools used depends on the quality of the empirical valuesused within them such as heat transfer coefficients.
Hudjetz, S.; Koenigsdorff, R.; Rees, S.J.; Cook, M.J.
This paper describes some qf the thinking behind the thermal comfort provisions of the new European Standard EN1 525 1 (CEN:2007) for free-running buildings. This standard deals with all aspects on the indoor environment.
Nicol, F.; Humphreys, M.; Rijal, H.
The aim of this paper is to have a generaldiscussion of the status regarding energybuilding codes in relation to TAQ concerns.First, there is a brief discussion of the trends inenergy regulations and in IAQ concerns.
Wouters, P.; Delmotte, C.; Van den Bossche, P.; Heijmans, N.
This paper investigates the thermal effect of ceiling-mounted light fixtures for a displacement ventilation system. The influence of fluorescent lainps on a ceiling is examined by computational fluid dynamics and experimental methods.
Hashimoto, Y.; Yoneda, H.
In the desiccant dehumidifier using adsorbentsuch as silica gel and zeolite, outdoor moist airis dehumidified in adsorbent.
Momoi, Y.; Yoshie, R.; Satake, A.; Yoshino, H.
Experimental study was conducted onimproving air-conditioners' energy efficiencyusing hydroponic roof plants. The air-coolingeffect caused by the solar-shading andtranspiration of hydroponic-cultivated sweatpotato was measured.
Wang, F.; Yoshida, H.; Yamashita, M.
The paper presents the results of mold growthrislzs in a corner wall near an entrance door inan apartment house. The corner wall isrecognized as a trouble spot for condensationand mold risk in apartment buildings.
Moon, H.J.; Park, J.W.; Yoon, Y.R.; Jee, S.W.
An investigation was performed in a middle-corridor-type elementary school in Tolcyo, Japan, equipped with an air-conditioning system for cooling.Temperatures and C02 concentrations weremeasured in classrooms, corridors and outdoors.Visual inspect

In the past various experimental investigationsabout room airflows were published.
Heschl, C.; Sanz, W.; Lindmeier, I.
This paper describes the merit of daylighting bycomparing the physical and psychologicalaspects of light and heat radiation.
Maki, Y.; Shukuya, M.; Miyazaki, K.
According to the definition, passive houses inEurope meet a target energy demand for heatingof less than 15 kWh per square meter and peryear.
Mlecnik, E.; Van Loon, S.; Hasselaar, E.
Recently post-occupancy evaluation is oftenused to know the actual performance of socalledenergy saving building components andto compare with simulated performance. Inreality, the occupants choice how to achievecomfortable conditions, e.g.
