Ventilated Buildings Optimisation By Using A Coupled Thermalairflow Simulation Program

Ivan Oropeza-Perez, Poul Alberg Østergaard, Arne Remmen

Abstract: This work shows the optimization of natural ventilation within buildings at the stage of design and behaviour of the occupants. An evaluation is done by coupled multizone air modelling and thermal building simulation by using a deterministic set of input factors comprising among others climate, local environment, building characteristics, building systems, behaviour of occupants, heat loads. Selected deterministic input factors were varied to generate additional information applied in an optimization loop. With that, it is found that the optimal solution depends to a great deal on the possibility of combined optimization of the behaviour of occupants with a lesser extent of the design building.
