This paper presents a study of solar chimneysusing a Phase Change Material (PCM)integrated into the heat absorber of the solarchimney.
Ochiai, N.; Sagara, K.; Yamanaka, T.; Kotani, H.; Momoi, Y.; Kaneko, Y.
In this study, a durability assessment model forbuilding envelopes design based onhygrothesmal and wood rot decay analysis ispresented.

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.
Cody, B.
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

The decision makers in urban planning facevery often a dilemma whether to demolish orretrofit old buildings.
Charvat, P.; Jicha, M.
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.
