The minimum illuminance requirement for New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) Clause G7 – Natural Light is currently not being met in some new apartments.
Krystle Stewart and Michael Donn
This paper utilizes a probabilistic mold risk assessment method, introducing a novel mold risk indicator (MRI). The MRI captures the risk of mold occurrence at identified “trouble spots” under uncertainty.
Hyeun Jun Moon, Godfried Augenbroe
Traditional approaches to simulate airflow movements in buildings are computationally expensive and do not achieve real-time prediction of results.
Ravi Srinivasan and Ali Malkawi
The proposition of an assessment method of wind condition in urban structures is presented in the paper. In the second part of the paper two virtual residential districts with different urban organisation have been investigated.

Natural ventilation relies on less controllable natural forces so that it needs more artificial control, and thus its prediction, design and analysis become more important.
Zhiwen Luo and Yuguo Li
Bake-out with dilution ventilation is a potential technology that can shorten emission cycle of indoor VOCs and other hazardous gas, and then reduce indoor environment pollution brought forward by building materials.
Yang Lu, Jing Liu, Bing-nan Lu, An-xi Jiang, Jing-ru Zhang, Bing Xie, Jing Li, Lei Zhang
The objective of this study is to investigate the possible transmission mechanism of inter-flat air cross-contamination under the condition of singlesided natural ventilation.
Xiaoping Liu, Jianlei Niu, Naiping Gao, Marco Perino, Per Heiselberg
A methodology was developed to calculate health damages due to exposure to radon emitted to indoor air for use in dwelling life cycle assessment. Fate factors were calculated based on dose conversion factors and effective outgoing airflows.
Arjen Meijer
In a previous study, a whole room IAQ model consisting of multi-phase emission/sorption model for wall materials and room volume mass balance model catering for practical ventilation schemes was developed.
Feng Li and Jianlei Niu
By k− ε  turbulence model, the indoor air fluid flow and heat transfer conjugated programs in the YZ25K air-conditioned passenger car are solved with SIMPLE algorithm.
Dengchun ZHANG, Peifen WENG
Cities all over the world have been warming up in the summer over the years. Seoul, Korea, is also an example of how a city was transformed into an urban heat island.
Soo-Gon Han, Sun-Hye Mun, Jung-Ho Huh
The airtight window system adopted in highrise residential buildings or residential-commercial complexes recently in Korea gives rise to poor ventilation, deterioration of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and the overloading of cooling systems during the

Increasing attention is being paid to natural solutions to building design, e.g. mixed-mode (or hybrid) ventilation, or increased use of daylight.
Macdonald I A and Reardon J T
Food odor dispersion from residential unit to core is one of problems in high-rise residential building.
Hyesoo Suh, Byungseon Sean Kim, Taeyeon Kim, Jeonghee Lim
Interior-surface condensation on the glazed curtain wall of high-rise residential buildings is an important environmental issue in Korea. There are three causes of the surface condensation.
Byungseon Sean Kim, Sanghyun Park, Jongchan Lee, Taesup Lim
The opening typology influences the ventilation of the rooms offering more or less resistance to the airflow.
Christhina Cândido, Leonardo Bittencourt, Alexandre Sacramento
We present a prototypically implemented and empirically tested daylight-responsive lighting systems control in buildings that makes use of realtime sensing and lighting simulation.
Ardeshir Mahdavi and Bojana Spasojević
Reliable prediction of daylight availability in indoor environments via computational simulation requires reasonably detailed and accurate sky luminance models.
Bojana Spasojević and Ardeshir Mahdavi
To reduce the potential risk of airborne infectious diseases during an outbreak or to detect a chemical/biological release by a terrorist, it is essential to place appropriate chemical/biological sensors in commercial airliner cabins.
Sagnik Mazumdar and Qingyan (Yan) Chen
This paper analyzed the influence of neutral plane on natural ventilation in workshop. For several typical heights of neutral plane of a molding workshop, its influence on ventilation was simulated by means of CFD.
