CFD modelling techniques have been used to simulate the coupled external and internal flow in a cubic building with two dominant openings.
Yang T., Wright NG., Etheridge DW., Quinn AD.
The UK construction industry is beginning to take notice of Post Occupancy Evaluations (POE) of completed buildings.
Pegg I, Cripps A., Kolokotroni M.
Recently, in the Polish building sector, there has been a conflict between ventilation techniques and a strong tendency toward increasing building airtightness.
Nantka M.B.
During the past few years, the research team of the University of Michigan has developed techniques to solve problems associated with designing a performance evaluation tool environment.
Primikiri E., Malkawi A., Assimakopoulos M.N
The innovation of computational simulations at the design stage can provide a more accurate prediction of building characteristics. Presenting information about practical cases is essential to validate the usefulness of computed predictions.
Hiyama K, Kato S., Takahashi T., Huang H., Kobayashi S., Iwase S.
The amount of energy used to heat and cool buildings is a significant concern that impacts on issues from national policies to personal desires of cost and comfort.
Megri A.C., Snyder M., Musy M.
The potential for prediction error when using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for investigating internal building airflows is assessed in the current paper.
Horan J.M., Finn D.P.
This paper deals with tomographic techniques for two-dimensional spatially resolved concentrationmeasurements indoors. This represents a significant advance over the traditional point measuring method for mapping tracer gas and pollutants.
Cehlin M. , Sandberg M.
The basis for room air distribution solutions in ventilating and air conditioning rooms is the calculation of velocities in air jets from supply outlets. To calculate velocities, the C-value of the air outlets must be known.
Janotkova E., Pavelek M.
The purpose of this paper is to provide a multicriteria approach in order to develop and assess several control methods for hybrid ventilation.
El Mankibi M., Michel P.
Chenvidyakarn et al (2004a) investigated the natural ventilation of an occupied open-plan space, which was connected to an exterior through two stacks and a low-level vent.
Chenvidyakarn T.
A method for estimating the time-varying intensity of emitting sources of a gaseous contaminant inventilated enclosures is proposed in this numerical study.
Girault M., Maillet D., Fontaine JR., Braconnier R., Bonthoux F.
The purpose of this research was to assess the performance of air infiltration or naturally driven ventilation, the corresponding energy consumption and indoor contaminant level for residential buildings in Harbin, a typical city in the severe col
Liu J., Gao F., Yoshino H., Li Z.
An understanding of airflow patterns in operating rooms is required if the design of air distribution systems in such environments is to be improved and the risk of postoperative infection reduced.
Woloszyn M., Virgone J, Mélen S.
Functional availability is used to quantify the probability of a system’s capability both to be in an
Myrefelt S.
This paper presents some results of the research project "Domestic Violence and Architectural Space", sponsored by several Mexican Governmental Offices and Citizen Organizations.
Gomez-Azpeitia G., Givoni B., Alcántara A., Barragán P.
The interaction of turbulent plumes is examined in the context of building ventilation flows. Recent models for natural ventilation have been based on simplified treatment of the heat sources in a ventilated enclosure.
Linden PF., Kaye LNB.
A model has been proposed for evaluating the discharge coefficient according to the flow angle at an inflow opening for cross-ventilation.
Takashi Kurabuchi, Masaaki Ohba, Tomonobu Goto, Yoshihiko Akamine, Tomoyuki Endo, Motoyasu Kamata
The design of a building should provide the flow paths needed for natural ventilation.
Germano M., Ghiaus C., Roulet C.-A, Allard F.
Among the tools which serve to predict heat and mass transfer in a mechanically ventilated room, CFD is increasingly used. However, this type of tool needs a correct description of the boundary conditions, especially concerning the air inlet.
