Passive stack ventilation is one of a number of energy saving features commonly incorporated into modern sustainable building designs. The design of large, multi-compartment buildings poses a particular challenge for passive ventilation design due to the interaction between heat and air flows through different building zones. Using a simple mathematical model, we determine a number of rules of thumb for preliminary ventilation design in multi-storey buildings. In particular we highlight how a dimensionless analysis may be used to balance key design parameters and provide an intuitive understanding of the behaviour of these ventilation flows.
