Night ventilation is increasingly applied to help make buildings more resilient to a warming climate. While this can be achieved through mechanical ventilation, taking advantage of the natural forces of buoyancy and wind to night-ventilate ‘naturally’ offers potentially significant cost and energy savings.

This talk describes an approach to naturally night-ventilating multi-storey atrium buildings, using displacement ventilation, to achieve optimal ‘purging’ of the warm air that fills the building at the end of the day.

This talk is part of the Fluid Mechanics (CUED) series.
