Abstract

A simulation study on the reduction of cooling loads by utilizing cross-ventilation was performed for a typically shaped house as defined by the Architectural Institute of Japan. A reduction in cooling load of around 50% could be achieved when the windows were opened liberally at night compared with the cooling load when all the windows remained closed, regardless of building coverage ratio.
