A working group for natural ventilation and cross-ventilation at the Architectural Institute of Japan (AIJ) was established in 2005 by researchers and designers with an interest in this topic. One of the tasks of the working group is to review and classify related research papers. This paper introduces the activities of the working group and presents some results of the review work. As examples of the review work, this paper concentrates on the area cross-ventilation rate and the interference coefficient concept of the crossventilation phenomenon that solves the problem of the remaining dynamic pressure inside a room.
