ASHRAE arranges natural ventilation webinar

April 29, 2009

ASHRAE presents "Natural Ventilation" on Monday, May 4, 2009, from 1-4 p.m. EDT. The instructor is Frank Mills, P.E., of the UK's Environmental Design Consultants Limited.

Mills' course explains the various methods by which natural ventilation can be achieved, including successful examples. The course describes the calculation techniques with worked examples, ranging from simple manual calculations, spreadsheets, through to more sophisticated techniques, such as computational fluid dynamics, salt bath modeling, and physical (scale) model testing. Mills will also discuss hybrid solutions, including recent innovative schemes which have used the natural ventilation strategy throughout the year with added cooling in summer. The course follows the CIBSE Applications Manual AM10, Natural Ventilation in Non-Domestic Buildings. Attendees receive a discount on the purchase of this publication.
