A stochastic numerical model to predict natural ventilation outcomes of different building floor plans under various wind conditions
Mechanical ventilation of buildings accounts for as high as 40% of energy use and costs in commercial buildings and office spaces, which produces greenhouse gas emission by over 7.2 million tons per annum.
AIBUILD is working with the University of Melbourne on a project will promote natural ventilation of buildings in Australia which has one of the best natural ventilation potentials in the world.
The Australian workers will benefit from a healthy indoor environment which is important to their health and wellbeing.The Australian industries will benefit from the increased the productivity and competitiveness through long-term cost-saving in operating commercial and office buildings. Furthermore, the outcomes of this research will place Australian building industries at the forefront of sustainable infrastructure design and construction and enhance our competitiveness in the global market as an innovative natural ventilation solutions provider.
The indoor air pollutants and air-conditioning related disases are great threats to our health. Especially under the pandemic, the urgency of adopting natural ventilation is even highlighted.
The natural ventilation system can reduce energy usage and lead to lower expenditure in general.
Using natural ventilation system will benefit the Australian environment from low green gas emission resulting from the reduced energy consumption of mechanical ventilation.
