Abstract

Highlights
•A novel wall-mounted attached ventilation (WAV) night cooling system proposed.
•Experiments carried out to understand the temperature decreasing effect of WAV.
•Transient heat transfer models established to analyse the thermal performance of WAV.
•WAV has much better performance on surface cooling and heat removal than natural ventilation.
