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.
This paper describes the history and background of the ventilation requirements. Thepaper starts with an overview of existinginternational requirements.
de Gids, W.
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 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.
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.
A radiant heating applied to floor, so called'Ondol', is a traditional heating method in Koreaand has been widely used.
Hwang, W.-J.; Kim, Y.-M.; Sohn, J.-Y.
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.
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.
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 field work was conducted in Wuhan in2007 summer to investigate local residents'thermal adaptation.
Yan, X.; Han, Y.
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.
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
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.
This paper describes the merit of daylighting bycomparing the physical and psychologicalaspects of light and heat radiation.
