Course Length: 3 hours
This course explains the various methods by which natural ventilation can be achieved, including successful examples. The course describes the calculation techniques with worked examples, ranging from simple manual calculations, spreadsheets, through to more sophisticated techniques, such as computational fluid dynamics, salt bath modeling and physical (scale) model testing. Options for hybrid solutions are described, including recent innovative schemes which have used the natural ventilation strategy throughout the year with added cooling in summer. The course follows the CIBSE Applications Manual AM10, Natural Ventilation in Non-Domestic Buildings.
