Abstract

In large enclosures, common ventilation strategies, as complete mixing, require considerable amounts of energy to move and condition enormous amounts of air. The air flow pattern should therefore be well planned and controlled to ensure an acceptable indoor air quality in the occupied zone without the need for excessive air flow rates.
This part of the summary report concentrates on describing methods for designing and analysing ventilation in large enclosures. lt includes application of different mathematical models in the design process for simulation of temperature distribution, air motion and contaminant spread in order to evaluate performance and locate problems.
