Evaluation of a multi-layer rack latent heat thermal energy storage system coupled with a building ventilation system | 2008 | English
A numerical simulation is used to evaluate theefficiency of a multi-layer rack composed ofphase change material (PCM) sheets each. Thebuilding, object of this study, is actually underconstruction in Lyon and will be monitored.
Recently, a law securing 0.7ACH ventilationrates was enacted in South Korea. As aconsequence, various ventilators have beeninstalled in apartments.
International building legislation is setting stronger and stronger requirements for the energy performance of buildings. The most recent example is the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive in the European Union.
The case study of a nursery school of Bologna isa pilot example of how hybrid ventilationsystems can be embedded in architecturallysignificant buildings.
The purpose of this paper is to proposestrategies of reducing energy consumption forcooling in residences under hot and humidclimate such as Indonesia.
There is an obvious and indisputable need for anincrease in the efficiency of energy utilization inbuildings.
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
Study on Airflow around Building Roof for Design of Natural Ventilationby Chimney-Part2 Wind Velocity Distribution above Building Roof- | 2008 | English
The purpose of this study is to clarify thecharacteristics of airflow around building roofand to provide the guidelines for design ofnatural ventilation by chimney.
On the Relation Between the Energy and Social Characteristicsof the Residential Sector. | 2008 | English
Social, financial, energy and technical data from about 1 1 10 households have been collected during 2004 in the major Athens area. The sample has been divided in seven inconie groups and a detailed analysis has been performed.
Solar Thermal and Electric Desiccant Cooling System,Part 2: Experimental Investigation and Evaluation | 2008 | English
The combined solar thermal and electricdesiccant cooling system is designed, fabricated,assembled and installed in the Laboratory ofBuilding Environmental Engineering of TohokuUniversity.
Potential Influence of Moisture Sorption and Desorption of Walls on SpaceConditioning Load of Residential Buildings | 2008 | English
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.
The evaluation of the effectiveness ofcogenerations in energy saving is dependent onthe profile of electricity demand and heatdemand as many experts know.
Interzonal air movements are important tocharacterize overall ventilation perfosmance ofcomplicated multi-zone indoor spaces.
Measurements and smoke tests show that thequadrants of a Windcatcher with a positivepressure across them act as supply ducts, whilethose with a negative pressure across them actas exhaust ducts.
Determination of air permeability of buildings according to IS0 9972 orEN 13829 - Proposal for clarifications | 2008 | English
Building airtightness is an important parameter that canbe measured according to the International Standard IS09972 "Therm~~l performance of buildings -Determination of air permeability of buildings - Fanpressurization method".Since 2006, there is
The Decision-making Process for Material and Ventilation Rate consideringIAQ and Cost in Apartment Buildings | 2008 | English
Indoor air concentration is mainly affected bythe emission rate of contaminants frommaterials and the ventilation rate. Therefore, theappropriate selection of materials andventilation rate is an important factor for indoorair quality.
To obtain thermal comfort in a moderateclimate, dwellings were traditionally providedwith a heating system, but few had coolingsystems.
