Application of probabilistic simulation and Bayesian decision theory in the selection of mold remediation actions | 2007 | English
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.
Toward real-time indoor airflow simulations for immersive visualization using adaptive localization method | 2007 | English
Traditional approaches to simulate airflow movements in buildings are computationally expensive and do not achieve real-time prediction of results.
Application of numerical simulation in assessment of microclimatic condition in urban areas | 2007 | English
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.
Numerical value research on bake-out technology with dilution ventilation for building materials | 2007 | English
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.
CFD simulation of inter-flat air cross-contamination—A possible transmission path of infectious diseases | 2007 | English
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.
Human health damages due to indoor sources of radon in life cycle assessment of dwellings | 2007 | English
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.
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.
Numerical simulation and experiment research of air organization in air- conditioned passenger car | 2007 | English
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.
Changes of the micro-climate and building cooling load due to the green effect of a restored stream in Seoul, Korea | 2007 | English
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.
Simulation-based performance assessment of slit-type ventilation system for domestic buildings in Korea | 2007 | English
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.
Influence analysis of stack effect on odor dispersion from unit to core in the high-rise residential buildings | 2007 | English
Food odor dispersion from residential unit to core is one of problems in high-rise residential building.
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.
Building regulation and thermal comfort: the opening typology influence on natural cooling inside office buildings in Maceió | 2007 | English
The opening typology influences the ventilation of the rooms offering more or less resistance to the airflow.
We present a prototypically implemented and empirically tested daylight-responsive lighting systems control in buildings that makes use of realtime sensing and lighting simulation.
Reliable prediction of daylight availability in indoor environments via computational simulation requires reasonably detailed and accurate sky luminance models.
Response of contaminant detection sensors and sensor systems in a commercial aircraft cabin | 2007 | English
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.
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.
