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.
The holistic aim of this study is to make clearthe possibility of passive cooling systems usingnatural cool sources produced by cyclic weatherchanges. Here in this study, we focused on apossible use of rainwater for cooling.
Kataoka, E.; Iwamatsu, T.; Shukuya, M.
The Energy Conservation for Buildings andCommunities Systems (ECBCS) is anImplementing Agreement among 23 countriesof the IEA (International Energy Agency) forenergy research and development in buildingsand communities.
Atif, M.
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.
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.
Recently, supplying glass space like atrium isbeing extended widely for introducing naturallight into a building, improving rest roomfunctions and having a pleasant workenvironment.
Lee, Y.-G.; Sohn, J.-Y.; Lee, J.-Y.; Kim, D.-H.
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.
In recent years, the insulation and air-tightnesslevels of newly constructed houses in Japanhave been improved for purpose of energysaving. However, a reduced design of airpermeability (i.e.
Yoshino, H.
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.
This paper discusses the possibility of asimple solar hot water pre-heating system fordomestic hot water supply. In Japan, the fossilfuel use for hot water supply amounts to about30% of the total in residential buildings.
Hoshino, Y.; Shukuya, M.
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.
Humphreys, M.A.; Rijal, H.B.; Nicol, J.F.; Tuohy, P.
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
Mirsadeghi, M.; Blocken, B.; Hensen, J.L.M.
This field work was conducted in Wuhan in2007 summer to investigate local residents'thermal adaptation.
Yan, X.; Han, Y.
This paper describes the history and background of the ventilation requirements. Thepaper starts with an overview of existinginternational requirements.
de Gids, W.
Translucent thermal insulation walls forJapanese houses have been designed to allowsolar radiation and daylight to pass through thewalls into the house (Fig.
Kitadani, Y.; Suzuki, H.; Kihara, M.; Iwata, T.
This study aims to derive design data of thesupply chilled water temperature and water flowrate for the radiant floor cooling system inKorean residential buildings.
Baek, S.-H.; Shin, M.-S.; Jeong, C.-H.; Lee, J.-Y.; Yeo, M.-S.; Kim, K.-W.
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
A radiant heating applied to floor, so called'Ondol', is a traditional heating method in Koreaand has been widely used.
