A new model has been proposed for evaluating the discharge coefficient and flow angle at an inflow opening for cross-ventilation.
Takashi Kurabuchi, Masaaki Ohba, Tomoyuki Endo, Yoshihiko Akamine, Fumihiro Nakayama
The proposed local dynamic similarity model of cross-ventilation predicted ventilation flow rates more accurately than the conventional orifice flow model assuming constant discharge coefficients when discharge coefficients actually decreased with

The wind and buoyancy pressure driving forces for natural ventilation of buildings are very low, typically less than 10 Pa.
Chilengwe N., Sharples S.
Natural ventilation is a sustainable, energy-efficient and clean technology that is well accepted by occupants.
Per Heiselberg
An overview is given of the current position regarding the use of wind tunnel modelling and envelope flow theory for determining natural ventilation through large openings.

The characteristics of a hybrid air-conditioning system, utilising natural and mechanical 'task' ventilation, are investigated in an office setting.
Hyunjae Chang, Shinsuke Kato, Tomoyuki Chikamoto
Creating a computer model that is able to simulate different ventilation scenarios within a structure is essential for improving the understanding of passive designs that are both sustainable and environmentally acceptable.

This paper describes an analysis using the BRE Pollution Dispersion Wind Tunnel to estimate pollution concentration patterns on buildings in urban arrays due to local line sources of pollution, typical of vehicular traffic emissions.
Hall D.J., Sharples H., Walker S., Kukadia V..
The problem of the hygienic state of air-conditioning installations in many countries is still treated with limited attention and, in general, this issue is disregarded both when systems are designed and when the maintenance of already operating s

The aim of this work is to investigate turbulent air flows, through measurements inside railway coaches employed for the transport of sick persons.
A. de Lieto Vollaro, P. Gori , A. Vallati
Natural ventilation, which may provide occupants with good indoor air quality and a high level of thermal comfort, and reduce energy costs, has become an important sustainable strategy in building designs.
Yi Jiang, Camille Allocca, Qingyan Chen
The observation of wind pressure acting on the wall and floor of a full-scale building model under cross ventilation was carried out.
