2 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

7 Wind Effect  CIBSE provide K s and a values: BC 3722 HVAC Engineering TerrainKsKs a Open, flat country Country with scattered windbreaks Urban City

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

12 Wind Effect BC 3722 HVAC Engineering

13 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

19 Dilution of contaminants  Concentration, C, at any time τ {C i V + V c – C(V+V c )}dτ=d(CV) BC 3722 HVAC Engineering
