Abstract: A numerical investigation on the indoor thermal environment and human thermophysiological responses under natural ventilation in a model house was performed by a coupled analysis of CFD and human thermal models in this study. In particular, the effects of the differences in the angle and temperature of the incoming flow for the natural ventilation on the indoor thermal environment and human thermophysiological responses were clarified. Finally, the maximum availability of natural ventilation was quantitatively discussed based on the result by a subjective experiment.
