It is well known that iterative solution processes can lead to divergence when dealing with coupled airflow and thermal analyses for buildings ventilated either naturally or by a mixed-mode system.

International Journal of Ventilation, Volume 1, 2002-2003
A Moisture Admittance Model, which takes into account absorption and desorption, has been developed to simulate moisture behaviour in dwellings.
The Impact of Replacement Windows on Air Infiltration and Indoor Air Quality in Dwellings | 2003 | English
This paper examines the impact on domestic background air infiltration of replacing ‘old windows’ with modern double-glazed and draught sealed windows, both with and without controllable ventilation (e.g. trickle ventilators).
The Influence of a Capture Jet on the Efficiency of a Ventilated Ceiling in a Commercial Kitchen | 2003 | English
The ventilated ceiling is a flexible solution for kitchen ventilation where heat loads are relatively low and aesthetics is a concern.
The Influence of Bend Angles upon the Performance of Passive Stack Duct Systems within Dwellings | 2003 | English
Passive stack ventilation systems have been used for a number of years throughout the world. They were specifically mentioned within the 1995 revision of the Building Regulations for England and Wales as a means of compliance.
This paper presents an overview of systems that utilise thermal mass in conjunction with night ventilation.
Tracer Gas Measurements for Ventilation, Air Movement and Air Infiltration in a Four-Sided Atrium Office Building | 2002 | English
The research described in this paper is part of a project aimed at improving energy costs and the indoor environment of atrium buildings.
This paper reports the results of a study to test two novel procedures to model dynamic thermal conditions of an enclosure within Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
Ventilation Effectiveness Parameters Resulting from Mechanical Ventilation with Recirculation | 2002 | English
The effectiveness of a ventilation system in terms of the age of air and its ability to remove contaminants will be significantly affected if part of the exhaust air is recirculated.
Wind Driven Cross-Flow Analysed as a Catchment Problem and as a Pressure Driven Flow | 2003 | English
The wind approaching a building provided with openings has to make a choice; i.e. either to flow around the building or to flow through the openings.
Wind Tunnel and CFD Investigation of the Performance of a Wind Driven Ventilation System | 2002 | English
Experimental investigations and CFD simulations were carried out to evaluate the performance of square and circular section wind - driven systems for natural ventilation application in buildings.
