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.

This paper describes the merit of daylighting bycomparing the physical and psychologicalaspects of light and heat radiation.
Maki, Y.; Shukuya, M.; Miyazaki, K.
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.
