Air and Heat Flow through Large Vertical Openings

  title={Air and Heat Flow through Large Vertical Openings},
  author={Jan L. M. Hensen and Jeffrey D. Maas and Andreas Roos},
After a short description of the physical phenomena involved, unified expressions are worked out describing net airflow and net heat flow through large vertical openings between stratified zones. These formulae are based on those of Cockroft for bidirectional flow, but are more general in the sense that they apply to situations of unidirectional flow as well. The expressions are compatible with a pressure network description for multizone modelling of airflow in buildings. The technique has… CONTINUE READING
