Sales data shows that the use of air-to-air heatpumps in New Zealand houses is rapidlyincreasing. This rapid uptake will lead to newenergy and peak power demands on theelectricity supply system.
French, L.; Isaacs, N.; Camilleri, M.
It is well known that the turbulence anisotropyhas a remarkable influence on the flow of threedimensional wall jets.

In this work the problem of the estimation of achange in the dynamics and time-varyingthermal parameters for a wall from experimentaldata is solved in several ways.
Enriquez, R.; Jimenez, M.J.; Heras, M.R.
This paper discusses whether there is thermalcognition acquired through daily experience inthe built environment during summer seasons.For this purpose, we analysed the results of asubjective experiment to reveal the relationshipbetween subjective

Honda Wako Building(hereinafter called HWB)" is ahigh efficiency saving energyoffice building with six floorshaving 52,138-m2 of total floorarea.
Tamura, F.; Yokoyama, H.; Orima, M.
Conventional air-conditioning control in a roomassumes perfect diffusion of temperature in theroom, and relies on a temperature sensorinstalled on the wall or ceiling of the room, or inthe return duct.
Fukuda, S.; Chikamoto, T.; Nishimura, T.
A numerical model of an underfloor air distribution system was created to aid future research on the system's environmental performance. A validated numerical model can serve to minimize the need for costly experimental setups.
