There is an obvious and indisputable need for anincrease in the efficiency of energy utilization inbuildings.
Schmidt, D.; Shukuya, M.
Maintaining a good indoor air quality (forpeople and building conservation) is obviously thefirst aim of any ventilation system; neverthelessthe main side effect - which is also the mostvisible one - is to spend energy, for heating firstand for tr
Jardinier, M.; Savin, J.L.; Berthin, S.
The purpose of this study is to clarify thecharacteristics of airflow around building roofand to provide the guidelines for design ofnatural ventilation by chimney.

The hygrothermal performance of houses isrecently being required to indicatequantitatively due to the encouragement ofenergy conservation. Several calculationmethods are practically proposed to evaluateenergy saving measures of houses.
Ozaki, A.; Ozasa, H.; Kuma, Y.
The evaluation of the effectiveness ofcogenerations in energy saving is dependent onthe profile of electricity demand and heatdemand as many experts know.
Sawachi, T.; Miura, H.; Habara, H.; Kuwasawa, Y.; Mae, M.
Interzonal air movements are important tocharacterize overall ventilation perfosmance ofcomplicated multi-zone indoor spaces.
