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 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.
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 study aims to derive design data of thesupply chilled water temperature and water flowrate for the radiant floor cooling system inKorean residential buildings.

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.
BEU accounting and assessment is a fundamental task for development of energy efficiency in buildings. The traditional methodology is based on caloric value of energy carriers, which is only relates to energy quantity.
Liu, M.; Li, B.; Yao, R.
A radiant heating applied to floor, so called'Ondol', is a traditional heating method in Koreaand has been widely used.

It is well known that the turbulence anisotropyhas a remarkable influence on the flow of threedimensional wall jets.
Heschl, C.; Sanz, W.
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.
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.
A new innovative design concept for the indoorair conditioning systems is proposed. Thisconcept uses passive control and modularly airdiffusion devices and aims complying with boththernial conifort and energy efficiencyobjectives.
Nastase, I.; Meslem, A.
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.
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.
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.
Realistic knowledge of window-opening andfans use behaviour is needed, for the thermalsimulation of naturally ventilated buildings. Ifcontrols such us windows and fans wereefective and easy to use, thermal discomfortcould be largely avoided.
Rijal, H.B.; Humphreys, M.A.; Nicol, J.F.
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.
Chang, J.
This paper describes the merit of daylighting bycomparing the physical and psychologicalaspects of light and heat radiation.
Maki, Y.; Shukuya, M.; Miyazaki, K.
In this study, field measurements andinvestigations have been carried out tounderstand the energy consumption and indoorenvironment of a sustainable designed officebuilding.
