Title: Night ventilation for cooling office buildings

Ref Code: IP4/98

Abstract1: Night ventilation is a low-energy strategy for cooling a building, providing a more comfortable environment for the occupants during hot daytime periods. It works by using natural or mechanical ventilation to cool the surfaces of the building fabric at night so that it can absorb heat during the day. This paper describes the weather and building design conditions for an effective application of the technique to office buildings.
