Example text

The equation for this pressure loop will be similar in form to the case of combined windand buoyancy-driven ventilation: ⌬ps ϩ ⌬pw ϭ ⌬pinlet ϩ ⌬pinternal ϩ ⌬pexhaust (33) The stack pressure is determined by the indoor-tooutdoor air density difference and the height difference from the stack exhaust and the floor-level inlet locations, ⌬ps = (␳o – ␳i)g⌬z, if air temperatures within the cold stack can be maintained close to outdoor levels. 8. 10 Solar collector used as: (a) ventilator; (b) heater The driving wind pressure is determined by the difference between inlet and exhaust wind pressure coefficients and the kinetic energy content of the approach wind 2 /2.

But this temperature refers to the undisturbed wind that flows in the urban boundary layer. The temperature distribution in the urban canopy layer is greatly affected by the radiation balance. Solar radiation incident on urban surfaces is absorbed and then transformed to sensible heat. Most of the solar radiation impinges upon roofs and upon the vertical walls of buildings; only a relatively small part reaches ground level. In fact, in street canyons, the air temperature is much lower than in the boundary layer, partially compensating for the heat island effect.

This eliminates potential security and safety problems caused by having windows that open, as well as wind pressure differentials around the building. Double façades can be used for solar-assisted stack ventilation or balanced stack ventilation. The cooling potential of ventilation The URBVENT project introduced a method based on the indoor temperature of a free-running building, which, combined with comfort criteria and climate, allows us to assess the energy needed for cooling and the potential for free cooling by ventilation (Ghiaus, 2003).
