Recently, dampness in buildings has beenindicated to be associated with occupants' healthdamages such as allergies. In particular mold inindoor air is considered to be a significant riskfactor of health.
Hasegawa, K.; Hayashi, M.; Honma, Y.; Osawa, H.
Misawa Homes have developed a homeaiming a zero annual energy balance, definedas the energy consumption over production byusing solar energy, in 1997.
Ohta, I.
TII this study the influence of temperature of thesupplied air of a personalized ventilation systemon energy need has been investigated by meansof simulations with IDA-ICE software.
Schiavon, S.; Melikov, A.K.
There are some ways to promote natural ventilation, but this research focuses on chimney which is traditional ventilation method used for industry or fireplace.
Watanabe, H.; Sagara, K.; Yamanaka, T.; Kotani, H.; Lim, E.; Komatsu, Y.; Higuchi, M.; Nishidan M.
Building performance can be expressed bydifferent indicators as primary energy use,environmental load andlor the indoorenvironmental quality and a building performancesimulation can provide the decision maker with aquantitative measure of the exte

In this study, a durability assessment model forbuilding envelopes design based onhygrothesmal and wood rot decay analysis ispresented.
Saito, H.; Fukuda, K.; Sawachi, T.; Oshima, A.
Tall buildings have traditionally been sealed andmechanical ventilated. In recent years advanceshave been made allowing the natural ventilationof tall buildings for a part of the year.

Environmental degradation, depletingconventional energy resources, and explodingworld population are indeed serious issues.Development of clean energy resources togetherwith clean technologies for human comfort is awonderful hunian creativity.
Takaki, R.; Yoshino, H.; Mochida, A.; Enteria, N.; Satake, A.; Yoshie, R.; Mitamura, T.; Baba, S.
In predicting flow rate of a cross-ventilatedbuilding, discharge coefficients obtained fromthe connected value of resistance coefficient ofopening based on the chamber method, and thewind pressure coefficients from a sealedbuilding are usually use

This study explores the plausible mechanismlinking outdoor air supply rates and workperformance through the perceptual responsesand a target salivary biomarker.
Tham, K.W.; Willem, H.C.
On-site air flow measurements of domesticventilation systems with using funnel type airflow measurement instrument which isgenerally used in Japan, has been reported themeasurement difficulties due to the terminaldevices' installed location, the e

Energy efficient building means automaticallyextra attention to energy efficient ventilationand air tight building.
Cauberg, J.J.M.; Op 't Veld, P.J.M.
The decision makers in urban planning facevery often a dilemma whether to demolish orretrofit old buildings.
Charvat, P.; Jicha, M.
For the patient, the sickroom is a place for themedical treatment and is also the living spacewhere they spend almost all time in a day.Therefore, high indoor air quality and thermalcomfort are needed in the sickroom.We propose to use the displace

Conventionally, the flow rate of a crossventilatedbuilding is predicted by using theorifice equation. When the opening is small,flow becomes like infiltration through cracks, itis useful.
Nishimoto, N.; Sagara, K.; Yamanaka, T.; Kotani, H.; Kobayashi, T.; Takeda, S.
The construction of high-rise buildings beganseveral decades ago in North America, and nowhigh-rise buildings are common in East Asiaand the Middle East.
