Development of a unique measuring unit for airflow volume within the vertical shaft of naturalventilation system with solar chimney with theresults of laboratory test and on-sitemeasurement is presented.
Shinada, Y.; Kimura, K.I.
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.
Erhorn, H.; Erhorn-Kluttig, H.; Carrie, R.
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.

This paper deals with pressurization usingHVAC systems on each floor as acountermeasure against stack effect generated inthe winter in high-rise office buildings that donot use revolving doors at the entrance.
Takemasa, Y.; Katoh, M.; Owada, J.; Aikawa T.; Suzuki, Y.
Buildings take a great share on the total energyconsumption and C02 emissions in Portugal.Poorly thought buildings pollute the urbanspace, and contribute to the increasing buildingssector energy demand.
