Real-time control of comfort in indoor spaces needs models of temperature distribution and the air velocity field.
Sempey A, Inard C, Ghiaus C and Allery C.
The purpose of ventilation is to dilute indoor contaminants that an occupant is exposed to. In a multi-zone environment such as a house, there will be different dilution rates and different source strengths in every zone.
Sherman MH and Walker IS.
This paper addresses the process of optimising the benefits of the natural (air) environment in the case of a high density city in which the amount of building volume is ultimately constrained.
Ng E.
Natural ventilation associated with shading techniques is an alternative way to reduce the use of expensive and environmentally harmful active systems, while providing summer thermal comfort and good indoor air quality.
El Mankibi M., Michel P.
A methodology approach to simulate, by means of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools, a greenhouse equipped with a fan and pad evaporative cooling system is presented.
Sapounas AA, Bartzanas T, Nikita-Martzopoulou C and Kittas C.
The important error sources associated with measurements using low velocity thermal anemometersincorporating an omnidirectional velocity sensor (LVTA) are identified and quantified.
Popiolek Z., Jørgensen F.E., Melikov A.K., Silva MCG, Kierat W.
Several building simulation programs have been developed for design, analysis and prediction of thedistribution of temperature, airflow and heat transfer between the inside and outside of a building, and/or between different zones of the building.
Megri A.C.
In this study, the function of carbon dioxide as an index of indoor air quality and as a tracer gas to estimate the air exchange rate in naturally ventilated single family houses was investigated.
Guo L and Lewis JO.
When the airflow pressure losses at the junctions of ducts in ventilation systems are taken into account, the analysis becomes more complicated since no unique value for the static pressure is associated with a junction.
Salonen E-M and Holopainen R.
Ventilation is essential for the health and comfort of building occupants. It is particularly required to dilute and/or remove pollutants emitted by occupants' metabolism and activities.
Richieri F, Salem T and Michel P.
The buildings sector is a major energy consumer as it accounts for almost 40% of the EU’s energy requirements and for about 1/3 of the total energy related CO2 emissions.
Kyparissi Th and Dimoudi A.
Recent work has begun to consider the potential for using freeze flow techniques in Computational Fluid Dynamics programs for carrying out long term simulations of time dependent flows.
Zitzmann T., Cook MJ, Pfrommer P.
Established methods of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) have been applied to predict the details of airflow, contaminant dispersal and thermal transport within isolated zones, yet zone transport processes do not occur in isolation.
Axley JW and Chung DH.
This paper presents steady-state energy and exergy analyses for dwelling ventilation with and without air-to-air heat recovery, and discusses the relative influence of heat and electricity on the exergy demand by ventilation airflows.
Sakulpipatsin P., Boelman E.C., Cauberg J.J.M.
In recent years, the quest has been focused on energy efficient building design.
Karunakaran R, Parameshwaran R, Pyluru R, Iniyan S and Mohan Lal D.
Passive cooling techniques such as night time cross ventilation can potentially provide substantial cooling energy savings in warm climates.
Lissen J.M.S., Fernández J.A.S., Sánchez de la Flor F.J., Domínguez S.A., Pardo A.R.
Localized ventilation systems typically create highly asymmetric or non-isothermal environments around occupants with significant vertical temperature gradient and highly non-uniform airflow regimes that could be directed toward a segment of the b
Shakeri A., Dolatabadi A., Haghighat F., Karimipanah T.
Knowledge of ventilation rates in dairy buildings is essential for determining indoor air quality and for estimating green house gases and particle emissions.
Teye FK and Hautala M.
Ventilation, cooling and air-conditioning contribute significantly to the energy consumption of many existing office buildings, particularly when primary energy factors are taken into account.
Wagner A, Klebe M., Parker C.
In order to provide comfort in a low energy consumption building, it is preferable to use natural ventilation rather than HVAC systems.
Bastide A, Allard F and Boyer H.
