A modelling study of segmentation of naturally ventilated tall office buildings in a hot and humid climate
Liu, Pei-Chun (2012) A modelling study of segmentation of naturally ventilated tall office buildings in a hot and humid climate. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The prevailing paradigm in indoor environment control of office buildings often excludes natural ventilation, due to the fact that its dynamic nature may not be compatible with the close control of mechanical conditioning systems. The challenges will be greater in terms of the potential high magnitudes of wind and buoyancy forces at high levels of tall buildings. This research is concerned with the prospect of tall office buildings that are purely naturally ventilated. It is proposed that “segmentation” might offer the least risky approach for natural ventilation design of non-domestic tall buildings.
