Numerical simulation of buoyancy-driven turbulent ventilation in attic space under winter conditions

Abstract

Attic design and construction have significant impacts on residential buildings’ energy performance. In order to understand how passive ventilation rates affect ridge-vent attic’s performance, a twodimensional steady-state finite volume model is employed to simulate the buoyancy-driven turbulent ventilation and heat transfer in a triangular attic space of a… (More)
