Conference Paper
As we progress toward net zero energy - efficient solutions, it becomes increasingly important to have more quality CFD models on thermal comfort and indoor environmental quality. Based on experimental data collected, there was an analysis of statistical data and variation of mathematical CFD models. The proposed models are built into a numerical c...
Conference Paper
Renewable sources are different from conventional sources of energy, the main reason is their instability. Renewable systems also depend on the location where the azimuth-dependent solar systems are located. As far as solar systems are concerned, they compensate very hard, but also quickly lose energy because the radiation transmission is the faste...
Conference Paper
According to the various researches, the people spend the most of their time indoors which is directly connected to the necessity of adequate indoor air quality. The question of the indoor air quality is of a special importance in educational buildings having in mind the large number of occupants, their health and impact on learning capabilities. T...

Altering the surface cover of an area causes the change in the environment. By erecting buildings change in the flow of energy and matter through the urban ecosystems occurs creating multiple environmental problems. Built areas exert considerable influence over their local climate, amplifying problems such as heat waves, air pollution, and flooding...

Cities are open and dynamic urban ecosystems, which consume, transform and release matter and energy. By erecting buildings change in the flow of energy and matter through the urban ecosystems occurs creating multiple environmental problems. Those problems are amplified by transportation and production systems, which influence the elements of the e...
Conference Paper
In the design construction of the new facilities and projects in existing facilities objective is to incorporate efficiently and cost effective a fire protection safety system. In a case of every fire hazard event, it is necessary to protect human life from fire hazard and products of combustion – smoke. The secondary goals of fire hazard are to re...

The goal of this paper is to investigate thermal and fluid flow processes in an air/water perforated plate heat exchanger. The experimental investigation was carried out over a single perforated plate which was installed in an experimental chamber and heated by hot water. A fan with the variable flow was connected to the experimental chamber, and t...

The central concern of indoor air quality (IAQ) analysis is the prediction of airborne contaminant dispersal in buildings. Airborne contaminants disperse throughout buildings in a complex manner that depends on many parameters: the nature of air movements (in-to, out-of and within the building system), the influence of the heating and natural venti...
