Abstract
Modern people spend much time at indoor space. So, People want to make better indoor air condition. But the facade of building is made of glass to be seen urbanely, the effect of solar radiation makes indoor environment worse. This study designs an open space affected by solar radiation with 4-way cassette air-conditioner. Using numerical simulation, this paper investigates thermal comfort and ventilation performance with discharge angles $\small{30^{\circ}}$ and $\small{45^{\circ}}$. To study thermal comfort, this paper studies distribution of velocity, temperature and effective draft temperature. Also, this paper introduces concept of air age to study ventilation performance. The flow influenced by solar radiation determines thermal comfort and ventilation performance in room space. This study shows that discharge angle of 45 degree has better thermal comfort and ventilation performance than that of 30 degree.
