A Study on Improving Ventilation Performance in High-rise Residential Building by Natural Ventilation System

자연환기 시스템을 이용한 고층 공동주택의 환기성능 향상에 관한 연구

  • Published : 2007.08.31


This study focuses on developing natural ventilation system which is able to satisfy the good indoor air quality and air speed. The natural ventilation system developed in this study is for double window façade and it has two operation modes for summer and winter. Operational sections of the devices have been analyzed by CFD simulation to calculate discharge coefficients of openings and estimated indoor air speed. For the analysis of the appropriate installation area ratio for each room and the optimum installation area, TRNFLOW simulation has been used. As the results, we could see that the natural ventilation system can provide the similar pollutant removal performance to 0.7 ACH of mechanical ventilation with appropriate installation area and installation area ratio.
