|Title:||Solar chimneys: simulation and experiment|
|Abstract:||The use of solar chimneys in buildings is one way to increment natural ventilation and, as a consequence, to improve indoor air quality. They are similar to conventional chimneys except that the south wall is replaced by a glazing. In order to compare the behaviour of a solar chimney with a conventional one, one of each was built in Porto. Results of measurements carried out in both chimneys are shown in this paper, as well as results of a thermal model specially developed for simulating solar chimneys, taking into account the wind effect. It was concluded that there is a significant increase in ventilation rate with solar chimneys, and that the thermal model predicts with good accuracy the measurements carried out.|
