A passive ventilation system using solar chimneys was designed to provide ventilation to several classrooms in an addition to an elementary school in Washington, DC.
Justin C Deblois, Demba Ndiaye
Validations of implicit large eddy simulation were carried about two wind tunnel studies, which are flow and dispersion measurements around the building.
Hiroki Ono
Application of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) toward performance-based building design has a long tradition. Increasingly, CFD tools are also being applied to address large-scale urban climatic questions.
Rukiye Cetin, Ardeshir Mahdavi
This study prepares a list of articles on the CFD analyses of room air flow in the architecture field in Japan, and compiles information related to CFD analysis conditions described in each article.
Koji Sakai, Hiroki Ono, Kazuhide Ito, Takashi Kurabuchi
Natural ventilation is considered an energy efficient measure that can utilize outdoor cool air to achieve free cooling but needs not consume any fan energy.
Fulin Wang, Zheliang Chen, Chen Chen, Yansheng Liu
Diffuse ceiling ventilation uses perforations in the suspended ceiling to deliver air into the occupied zone. Due to the complex geometry of the diffuser, it is not possible to build an exact geometrical model in CFD simulation.
Chen Zhang, Qingyan Chen, Per Heiselberg, Michal Pomianowski
The project is a design for a mixed mode system using either cross flow or stack effect natural ventilation with ceiling mounted fan coil units, in the 42,000m2 British International College campus in Yangon, Myanmar, designed by Tangram Architect
Erik André Chisholm
This study introduces a hybrid ventilation (HBV) system in a pig house combining natural and partial pit mechanical ventilation (PPMV). The PPMV system is installed below the slatted floor with the capacity of 30% of the maximum ventilation rate.
Li Rong, Erling F. Pedersen, Guoqiang Zhang
This study investigates the effect of modeling the slatted floor as porous media on prediction of ammonia emissions and airflow patterns.
Li Rong, Bjarne Bjerg, Guoqiang Zhang
Mixed mode ventilation is an effective way to reduce energy consumption as well as improve thermal comfort.
Bin Yan, Ali Malkawi, Yujiao Chen
Building form is one of the most critical factors influencing natural ventilation potential in an urban context, and thus has a significant impact on building energy consumption.
Bing Wang, Ali Malkawi
Minimum levels of attic ventilation have been required by residential building codes in the United States for years, but the precise attic temperature reductions of “poking holes in the roof” and corresponding energy impacts have rarely been robus
Dmitriy Burdzhalov, Joe Prijyanonda, Michael Daukoru, Donney Dorton
The benefits and limitations of time-dependent and steady state computational fluid dynamics simulations when evaluating natural ventilation were explored in a naturally ventilated case study apartment in the Mediterranean.
Efi Spentzou, Malcolm Cook, Chih Lung Lin
In the frame of a multi-year EU project, the set of European Standards from 2006/7 to support the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) is undergoing a revision. The majority of the standards describe calculation methods.
Gerhard Zweifel
Domestic Hot Water (DHW) production can account for a quarter of the energy consumed in UK dwellings and this proportion is likely to increase as the energy required for space heating reduces in order to achieve demand reduction targets.
Dashamir Marini, Richard Buswell, Christina Hopfe
This paper aims at assessing the energy savings potential of cold climate Air Source Integrated Heat Pumps (AS-IHP)s for Canadian households.
Kun Zhang, Humberto Quintana, David Bradley, Michaël Kummert, Mark Riley
In order to address the lack of reliable methods that can analyze the overall effects of PDEC tower with a spray system, analytical models that predict supply air conditions of the system were implemented into a whole building energy simulation pr
Daeho Kang, Richard K. Strand
Energy models are used in the residential sector to determine the baseline energy consumption and to predict the future energy demand.
Aner Martinez Soto, Mark Jentsch
Buildings are the main consumers of electricity across the world. In the electricity system, it is critical to have a realistic forecast of buildings’ demand for adequate power planning and management.
