Aims of Ventilation System To remove any undesirable odours or contaminants in a space or living place To ensure the CO 2 produced by respiration is being replaced by an adequate supply of O 2 BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

3
Types of Ventilation Natural Ventilation No mechanical means of supply and extraction of air Allow air to enter or leave the building due to pressure differences between outside and inside air Open windows, ventilators, shafts Mechanical Ventilation With mechanical means of supply and extraction of air Control the amount of air entering and leaving Fans BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

4
Natural Ventilation Two basic driving forces: Wind Effect: Pressure on the face of a building due to rapid deceleration of the wind of the outside surface Stack Effect Buoyancy effect due to the temperature difference between the outside and inside air BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

5
Wind Effect Wind speed varies with height above the ground This wind speed is related to wind pressure BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

6
Wind Effect Roughness => depends on the type of bldgs From the eqt., z ↑u ↑ However, this is impossible for the wind speed to be infinity. To explain this, basic boundary theory is adopted. Basic boundary theory: When wind speed approaches the ambient wind speed, the height become the thickness of the boundary layer BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

8
Wind Effect A non-dimensional coefficient, C p wherep = mean pressure at any point on bldg surface p 0 = pressure in the undistributed air stream u r = mean wind speed at a height equal to the bldg height ρ= density of air at temp. of outside air BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

9
Wind Effect Volumetric flow rate through opening, BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

10
Wind Effect For a number of openings in the same face of bldg, since the pressure difference is the same for each opening, and assuming the same value of C d for each opening BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

11
Wind Effect Assume air enters through openings on windward side of bldg and leave bldg through openings on leeward side In steady state, and assume BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

Stack Effect – Buoyancy flow BC 3722 HVAC Engineering 12 tiρitiρi toρotoρo urur toρotoρo A 1 and A 2 = area of openings separate by a height z ρ i and ρ o = mean density of outside and inside air respectively Δρ = difference in density between outside and inside air

14
Stack Effect BC 3722 HVAC Engineering In steady state, mass flow entering the bldg at section 1 is equal to the mass flow leaving the bldg at section 2

15
Stack Effect BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

16
Stack Effect BC 3722 HVAC Engineering Two assumptions can be made with good accuracy: (i)Density if air at mean of the inside and outside temp, ρ, can be put equal to the densities, ρ o and ρ i (ii)Ratio Δρ/ρ can be put equal to ΔT/T, where T (in K) is the mean temp. of the absolute temp. of the inside and outside air

17
Mechanical Ventilation Air infiltration air leakage through cracks around windows, doors Uncontrolled and undesirable Displacement ventilation Air is supplied at low velocity through large number of openings in ceiling or floor, and push across the cross- section of the space taking all the contaminants with it Dilution ventilation Air is introduced through jets into the room, jet set up a mixing pattern in room, thus diluting the contaminant in space before extract BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

18
Threshold Limiting Value (TLV) 1. As a time-weighted average concentration for a working day, or working week, to which workers may be subjected without adverse effects 2. As a maximum concentration to which workers can be subjected for a short time period, say up to 15 minutes * Lower explosive limit: concentration which must never be exceeded at any time BC 3722 HVAC Engineering
