The roofs of most of the buildings in Taiwan are exposed to direct (overhead) solar radiation during the summer season because it is located near the Tropic of Cancer. The estimated yearly solar heat gain received from a roof is 2.78 times greater than that gained from a south-side wall (the...
In this research, palm oil fuel ash was utilized as a pozzolanic material in blended Portland cement mortar. The mortar was tested on the normal compressive strength and the negative effect of carbonation in indoor environment using the accelerated carbonation test of 5% CO 2 in 50% relative...
In this paper we present in-situ measurements of the thermal characteristics of buildings in Nanjing, including information about the test chamber and arrangement of measuring points as well as measurement results, taken in Nanjing during the summer of 2001. A method for the analysis of in situ...
The purpose of this study was to identify whether the indoor environmental quality design criteria: office layout, office furnishing, thermal comfort, indoor air quality, lighting, acoustics, and cleanliness and maintenance in relation to the overall workspace for LEED ® -acreditation, could...
Conventional tropical building designs are experiencing a new paradigm in their environmental response to improve lighting ambiance and occupants’ visual comfort through the exploitation of daylighting. However, it is important for architects to understand that flaws in daylighting strategies...
Many existing personal air-conditioning systems cool only specific portions of the human body in the form of spot cooling, using either cooled or fast airflow to control thermal sensation. This may cause various problems related to localized airflow, such as discomfort to the face and neck areas...
In order to identify an indoor thermally comfortable environment for older people, this study examined the thermal acceptance of 384 older people of ages from 60 to 97 years under various thermal environmental conditions in 19 centers for older people in Hong Kong. The results were compared to...
Particle dispersion in a room under stratum ventilation and under displacement ventilation have been investigated by numerical simulation. In addition, an experiment was carried out involving the newer stratum ventilation. The agreements between simulated velocity, temperature by the RNG k-ε...
