Applying high temperature cooling concepts, i.e. high temperature cooling (T(supply) is 16-20°C) HVAC systems, in the built environment allows the reduction in the use of (high quality) energy. However, application of high temperature cooling systems can result in whole body and local discomfort of the occupants. Non-uniform thermal conditions, which may(More)
This paper presents the objectives and results of the initial stage of an going research project on coupling of building energy simulation (BES), air flow network (AFN) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) programs. The objective of the research underlying this paper is to develop and verify a prototype cooperative BES, AFN and CFD design environment for(More)

Field studies suggest that the availability of adjustable thermostats, operable windows and other controls has a positive impact on comfort, the incidence of building related symptoms and productivity. This laboratory study was designed to further investigate how having or not having control over the thermal environment affects human responses to the indoor(More)
Jet fans are applied for control of air flow and support of pollutant dispersal in large enclosures. In The Netherlands, application is well known for car parks as part of the fire safety design. In the design phase often the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)-technique is used to verify the fire safety level afforded by the application of jet fans.(More)
This paper presents the initial stages of an ongoing research project that aims to improve the use of computer simulation in building design. The goal of the current work is an airflow related performance assessment methodology (PAM). Particular attention is paid to appropriate modeling levels in terms of resolution and complexity. This is illustrated by(More)
