Natural ventilation is considered a prerequisite for sustainable
buildings and is therefore in line with current trends in the
construction industry. The design of naturally ventilated buildings
is more difficult and carries greater risk than those that are
mechanically ventilated. A successful result relies increasingly on
a good understanding of the abilities and limitations of the
theoretical and experimental procedures that are used for design.

There are two ways to naturally ventilate a building: wind
driven ventilation and stack ventilation. The majority of buildings
employing natural ventilation rely primarily on wind driven
ventilation, but the most efficient design should implement both

Natural Ventilation of Buildings: Theory, Measurement and
comprehensively explains the fundamentals of the theory
and measurement of natural ventilation, as well as the current
state of knowledge and how this can be applied to design.  The
book also describes the theoretical and experimental techniques to
the practical problems faced by designers.  Particular
attention is given to the limitations of the various techniques and
the associated uncertainties.

Key features:

  • Comprehensive coverage of the theory and measurement of natural

  • Detailed coverage of the relevance and application of
    theoretical and experimental techniques to design

  • Highlighting of the strengths and weaknesses of techniques and
    their errors and uncertainties

  • Comprehensive coverage of mathematical models, including

  • Two chapters dedicated to design procedures and another devoted
    to the basic principles of fluid mechanics that are relevant to

This comprehensive account of the fundamentals for natural
ventilation design will be invaluable to undergraduates and
postgraduates who wish to gain an understanding of the topic for
the purpose of research or design. The book should also provide a
useful source of reference for more experienced industry
