An important element in the natural ventilation design procedure is the flow-pressure characteristics of a window with a -given opening area. The flow in the room is another important element that is often ignored in the design phase due to lack of relevant information on the air movement. This paper shows the outcome of experiments with the room air distribution. The results show that the velocity distribution in the occupied zone can be described by a semiempirical model.
