Description:This book describes in depth the fundamental effects of buoyancy, a key force in driving air and transporting heat and pollutants around the interior of a building. This book is essential reading for anyone involved in the design and operation of modern sustainable, energy-efficient buildings, whether a student, researcher, or practitioner. The book presents new principles in natural ventilation design and addresses surprising, little-known natural ventilation phenomena that are seldom taught in architecture or engineering schools. Despite its scientific and applied mathematics subject, the book is written in simple language and contains no demanding mathematics, while still covering both qualitative and quantitative aspects of ventilation flow analysis. It is, therefore, suitable to both non-expert readers who just want to develop intuition of natural ventilation design and control (e.g., architects and students) and to those possessing more expertise whose work involves quantifying flows (e.g., engineers and building scientists)
