An appropriately designed and controlled natural ventilation system should be considered as a potential option to meet these requirements as, in many applications, it is possible to maintain IAQ levels while meeting the comfort requirements with low energy consumption. 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.

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. For stack ventilation, the pressure difference is caused by the difference in mass between the air in the building and that of the air outdoors. New UK guidelines 5 on ventilation, thermal comfort and indoor air quality in schools are soon to be published.

This can provide effective ventilation for a room width of up to four-to-five times the room height. Libraries of predefined objects are also increasingly available for dynamic thermal simulation software as shown in Figure 3 that provide both a geometric representation and functional parameters.

C p is the pressure coefficient, and will depend on the shape of the building and the direction of the wind.

Ventilation controls may be used to monitor CO 2temperature and humidity. The natural ventilation system consists of external static louvres and internal active louvre arrangements, which vary the opening and free area through the louvre face. For comparison, in a mechanical ventilation system a clean panel filter is likely to require a minimum of 40 Pa and a standard louvre will need around 20 Pa to pass a desired airflow. 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.

This can provide air flowrates during hot, still days — and work in deeper plan cibsd. 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.

It is challenging to cbse properly natural ventilation because of the multiple variable parameters, including: 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. 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.

Wind pressure will, of course, be variable and is subject to interference at ground level from obstructions.

Cinse including a relationship that determines the value of air density at a specific temperature, the available pressure for driving ventilation between two openings in a building can be determined. For cross ventilation to be successful, a pressure differential is needed between two openings on opposing faces of a room, which would normally mean that both sides have to be open to the outside air some have an open side into a building atrium or ventilation chimney.

They can typically be linked into the building wm10 system so xm10 they can be integrated into wider building monitoring and control, with the operational data collected and processed for system management. The use of accessible linked visual display interfaces can help educate end users about how the systems operate so that they may better maintain a comfortable, productive environment with minimum energy use.


If the openings are subsequently closed on one side, the ventilation system will revert to a single-sided system.

Integrating a ventilation tower to provide top-down natural ventilation Source: Air introduced from high level is typically less likely to carry airborne pollutants, and less prone to noise pollution compared with ground-level sources.

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. However, as reflected in that article, CFD still requires expert input to provide credible output.

Module 107: Predicting and delivering good building IAQ using natural ventilation

The windtowers pass through the roof of Simone Veil nursery and primary school, near Lyon, France Source: As discussed more fully in the December CPD article Hybrid ventilation for schoolsventilation in buildings can be broadly categorised as natural, mechanical or hybrid ventilation. Top-down ventilation as shown in Figure 2 takes advantage of both wind-driven and buoyancy-driven ventilation.

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. It is this consideration that will affect the practical effective depth of a naturally ventilated space. In simpler applications it may be from a low-level window, or louvre, on one side of the room to a high-level window or louvre on the same side, or on the opposite amm10 of the space.

The methods by which spaces are naturally ventilated may be split into four groups. 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.
