Recommendations for the analysis and design of naturally ventilated buildings in urban areas
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
The motivation behind this work was to obtain a better understanding of how a building's natural ventilation potential is affected by the complexities introduced by the urban environment. To this end, we have derived in ...
Improving the Fanger model's thermal comfort predictions for naturally ventilated spaces
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
The Fanger model is the official thermal comfort model in U.S. and international standards and is based on the heat balance of the human body with the environment. This investigation focuses on re-specifying the parameters ...
