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.
An investigation to understand the actual conditionsof smoking spaces was conducted, and itbecame clear that the introduction of a highlyefficientventilation system is necessary, in additionto the securing of a sufficient ventilationvolume.
Endo, T.; Kurabuchi, T.
It is believed that one method of maltingeffective use of energy is the sharing ofhydrogen energy or heat and electricityproduced by cogeneration systems at multiplefacilities in the community.
Kuwasawa, Y.; Momota, M.; Mitsumori, M.
Energy consumed in the Canadian residential sector for space cooling has more than doubled from 1990 to 2002. Cooling requirements, expressed by cooling degree-days have also increased.
Ouazia, B.; Barhoun, H.; Haddad, K.
A push-pull fume cupboard is a device to capture chemical vapors in a laboratory or a factory.
Chern, M.-J.; Lee, C.-Y.
This paper describes the merit of daylighting bycomparing the physical and psychologicalaspects of light and heat radiation.
Maki, Y.; Shukuya, M.; Miyazaki, K.
Air tightness is an important property ofbuilding envelopes. It is a key factor indetermining infiltration and related wallperformanceproperties such as indoor airquality, maintainability and moisturebalance. Air leakage in U.S.

This paper presents a design method to definethe settings of HVAC systems in order toprovide thermal comfort in high MRTenvironment in hot climates.
Monteiro, L.M.; Costola, D.; Shimomura, A.P.; Goncalves, J.
Conflation of computational fluid dynamics(CFD) and building energy simulation (BES)has been used in recent years in order toimprove the estimation of surface coefficientsfor studies on thermal comfort, mold growthand other performance aspects of

A roof is one of the most importantcharacteristics of Thai architecture especiallyin a house, traditionally. Also, the roof is apart of the house that mainly effects energysaving due to heat allowance pass through andrelease from indoor space.
Boonyaputthipong, C.
People who become too warm or too cool willadjust their clothing or reset building controls(windows, blinds, fans, thermostats) with theainz of restoring comfort or reducingdiscomfort, if they are free to do so.

This field work was conducted in Wuhan in2007 summer to investigate local residents'thermal adaptation.
Yan, X.; Han, Y.
Buildings are a man-made environment built innature.
Kodama, Y.
A com~nonp ractice, adopted by several buildingenergy simulation (BES) tools, is the use ofsurface averaged wind pressure coefficients (Cp)instead of local Cp values with high resolutionin space.
Costola, D.; Blocken, B.; Hensen, J.L.M
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
Iwamatsu, T.; Shukuya, M.; Kataoka, E.; Hoshino, Y.
A survey of air conditioner temperaturesettings and clothing insulation was carried outfor university student rooms in June-Octoberduring daytime on weekdays in Osaka, Japan.The results are as follows.
Umemiya, N.; Okura, R.; Tanaka, Y.
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.
