Cyclone purifier has been conventionally used for separating particles from exhaustion. This paper, however, tried to develop a cyclone purifier for fresh air treatment in ventilation.
Shuhui Xu, Minglian Zhou and Fenghua Duan
According to the cold climate in winter, a new novel ventilation system was put forward based on the analysis of the heat distribution at the subway station in Harbin.
Xiyan Guan, Yiqiang Jiang, Yang Yao
As a comfortable and energy-efficient air conditioning system, the application of radiant floor heating system is increasing greatly used in the north of China.
Yanli Ren, Deying Li, Yufeng Zhang
Urban issues to be resolved concerning building energy systems involve not only global warming but also the heat island phenomenon, the planning of urban infrastructures for electricity generation and distribution, and water purification.
Saki Hashimoto, Yohei Yamaguchi, Yoshiyuki Shimoda, Minoru Mizuno
A mathematical model has been developed for simulating the performance of small-scale fuel-cell cogeneration systems. An experimental programme has been conducted to calibrate the model (i.e.
Ian Beausoleil Morrison
The systematic numerical simulation program is developed to calculate the total energy efficiency of housing polymer electrolyte fuel cell co-generation system (PEFC-CGS) which is combined with hot water floor heating (HWFH).
Nobuyasu Ayagaki, Akihito Ozaki, Hiroto Takaguchi, Hiroshi Kuroki and Toshiyuki Watanabe
The air barrier technique is to apply the special airflow through window fan to improve the thermal environment near the windows in winter and summer, and especially in winter, to simplify the air conditioning system of perimeter zone of office bu

In this study, a new optimal design method for buildings and urban energy systems is proposed. Also its applicability is analyzed through a simple case study. Multi Island Genetic Algorithms (MIGA) are adopted for this optimization.
Ryozo Ooka, Kazuhiko Komamura
Meteorological data set for China building thermal environment analysis has been developed by Climatic Data Center of China Meteorological Administration and Tsinghua University.
Fangting Song, Qunfei Zhu, Ruhong Wu, Yi Jiang, Anyuan Xiong, Bomin Wang, Yanjun Zhu, Qingxiang Li
Using solar thermal energy is an interesting option for heat driven air conditioning e.g. desiccant cooling, but it is very important to know with which efficiency this renewable energy is used.
Paul Bourdoukan, Etienne Wurtz, Maurice Spérandio and Patrice Joubert
Heat island is a big issue for large cities especially located in hot and moist climate in Asian countries. The phenomenon is severer in an urban canyon because of surrounding highrise buildings causing little ventilation and heat dissipation from
Naoko Yamaoka, Harunori Yoshida, Mitsuo Tanabe, Michiko Yamashita and Takuma Koga
Through the paper a model simulating the thermal performances of an environment in transient state is presented.
Concettina Marino, Antonino Nucara, Matilde Pietrafesa, Alfredo Pudano
Atrium is becoming a popular common space in commercial buildings nowadays.
Qunfei Zhu, Da Yan
For large scale commercial buildings, the inner heat gains acts in an uncertain way in time serial and space.
Da Yan, Yi Jiang
 In the paper, Equivalent Slabs approach is presented to compute thermal bridges in building constructions properly and quickly.
Xie Xiaona, Jiang Yi
The heat transfer characteristics in building window frame have significant three-dimensional characteristics, but window U-value model are often used in most building codes for thermal analyses to simplify the calculations.
Y.Gao, J.J. Roux, L.H. Zhao
In order to realize “design by simulation” in building design, this paper discusses the methodology of applying building thermal simulation in the building conceptual design stage.
Yingxin Zhu, Chunhai Xia and Borong Lin
With the fast development of urbanization in China, the urban thermal environment has been worsen due to the more and more obvious heat island phenomena. Aartificial waterscape is regarded as one of the most effective methods to improve the outdoo
Borong Lin, Zhiqin Zhang, Xiaofeng Li, Yingxin Zhu
Long-wave radiation heat transfer is calculated using a geometrical factor the so-called view factor, which is normally estimated in a simplified way by building simulation programs, especially when there is no information in the literature due to
Lílian Dobrowolski de Carvalho Augusto, Bruno Giacomet and Nathan Mendes
Even in relatively warm area in Japan, frost damage of roof tiles occurs. In this study, the influences of several factors on frost damage are considered from a thermal environmental point of view.
