MetadataShow full item record
Fresh air and good air quality can be obtained by a natural ventilation system, to fulfill the requirement of near natural conditions for the psychological health of mankind. A natural ventilation system is an ecological, energy saving system that also meets architectural standards. Natural ventilation design methods are presented in this paper. A natural ventilation system is designed in the DunHuang museum. Thermal dynamic simulation and CFD simulation were analyzed in the exhibition hall. The results show that, for the exhibition hall, indoor temperature can fulfill the occupant thermal comfort requirements through natural ventilation in transition season and in summer.
