C p is the pressure coefficient, and will depend on the shape of the building and the direction of the wind.
This can provide a useful tool for sizing natural ventilation systems, particularly during the early stages of a project, when full details of a building are not always readily available. Top-down ventilation as shown in Figure 2 takes advantage of both wind-driven and cibee ventilation. All three ventilation types have appropriate applications; however, determining whether there is an opportunity for natural ventilation would be the normal starting point for a project.

It is this consideration that will affect the practical effective depth of a naturally ventilated space.
This allows the assessment of performance to investigate the capabilities of a potential scheme within a standard modelling environment. However, it is not completely reliant on either. Ventilation controls may be used to monitor CO 2temperature and humidity. The complexities of airflow movement within the space and the building itself mean that computational fluid dynamics is often required to evaluate properly the patterns and resulting effectiveness.
School buildings are often built and operated within tight financial constraints but, at the same time, require high standards of indoor air quality IAQ to promote good learning and health.
A natural ventilation system was used as part of the building system for a French school renovation that subsequently received a Green Building Solutions Award from the Construction 21 Network for Health and Comfort. Levels of indoor air quality and measured CO 2 levels have readily met design requirements. Stack-driven buoyant air rises within the space and, as it leaves through a purpose-made ventilation tower, is replaced with outdoor air that enters the tower through the positively pressured windward side.
The leeward faces of the ventilation tower have a lower pressure that helps to extract the buoyant, stale, warm air from the space below.

These are likely to become more common as building information modelling BIM methods further permeate the industry. This article will reflect on the application of natural ventilation as a method of maintaining IAQ, and consider the application and control of natural ventilation for school buildings. Libraries of predefined objects are also increasingly available for dynamic thermal simulation software as shown in Figure 3 cibee provide both a geometric representation and functional parameters.
Sponsor of this month’s CPD. However, as reflected in that article, CFD still requires expert input to provide credible output.
Air introduced from high level is typically less likely to carry airborne pollutants, and less prone to noise pollution compared with ground-level sources.
They can typically be linked into the building management system so cibde they can be integrated into wider building monitoring and control, with the operational data collected and processed for system management. As shown in the preceding calculations, the available pressure to drive natural ventilation is likely to be relatively small.
These systems can ventilate deep plan areas that do not otherwise have direct access to outdoor air, and are not affected by the depth of the room.
In simpler xm10 it may be from a low-level window, or louvre, on one side of the room aam10 a high-level window or louvre on the same side, or on the opposite side of the space. Located close to Lyon, south-east France, the ambient temperature is typically 3 to 4K warmer in summer and 2 to 3K cooler in winter than London. As the air moves across the cbse, it will pick up heat and pollutant from the internal environment before it leaves the room. Typically, windows would provide the openings, and this mode is likely to be effective up to a room depth of approximately twice the room height.
Values of C p are typically determined using wind tunnel tests as well as computational methods.

Wind pressure will, of course, be variable and cibze subject to interference at ground level from obstructions. The windtowers pass through the roof of Simone Veil nursery and primary school, near Lyon, France Source: CIBSE Guide A4 and application manual AM10 provide detailed methods and examples for assessing the practical potential for natural ventilation that are based on networks of airflow paths through openings including cracks in the building fabric, and the available driving pressure.
As discussed earlier, the practical driving pressures are likely to be small, and so require particularly careful consideration to determine the flow through appropriately low resistance networks of openings. The methods by which cibsf are naturally ventilated may ckbse split into four groups. The natural ventilation is driven with 16 windtowers above individual classrooms.
Pressure Pa at the base of a column of fluid such as air is simply 9. Manufacturers of natural ventilation systems have joined with simulation software suppliers to produce robust tools that require fewer inputs than normal commercially available simulation tools.
The system will only be successful if the supply air not only removes the pollutants and heat, but also provides fresh as opposed to stale or already contaminated air to the occupants.
