Abstract: Since naturally ventilated buildings respond to site conditions and microclimate, there is no ”one set of specific criteria” for every naturally ventilated building. So natural ventilation should be optimized to deal with thermal comfort in passive buildings during hot season. For this aim, we will propose a new method to reduce the number of independent parameters based on an analogy with a mechanically ventilated building, then we will apply an adapted optimization approach to produce an optimized ventilation sequence, and finally we will perform an inverse calculation to determine a series of opening heights corresponding to the optimized ventilation sequence.
