Vroeger werden gebouwen natuurlijk geventileerd en daglicht was de voornaamste bron van verlichting. Het binnenklimaat was vooral afhankelijk van het type gevel, dak, thermische massa en lokale verwarming. Overal in de wereld kunnen voorbeelden van traditionele gebouwen worden gevonden met een binnenklimaat waarin mensen zich comfortabel voelen...

Wanneer is natuurlijke ventilatie zinvol en wanneer niet? Waarom zijn we in veel gevallen overgegaan naar volledig mechanisch geventileerde gebouwen? Hoeveel ventilatie is eigenlijk nodig? Dit soort vragen zijn niet zo eenvoudig en eenduidig te beantwoorden. Er zijn vele meningen over.

Often, when designing and operating buildings, the goal is to achieve low energy consumption as well as a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. Studies in the US and The Netherlands show a large discrepancy between the predicted and the actual energy consumption of buildings. Some buildings perform better than predicted, while other...

Thermisch comfort is belangrijk. Voor het ontwerpen van het binnenklimaat, dimensioneren van klimaatinstallaties en beoordelen van het binnenklimaat in de praktijk is een comfortabel en gezond binnenklimaat één van de belangrijkste uitgangspunten. Simulaties van het ontwerp of metingen in praktijksituaties worden getoetst aan comfortcriteria....

Technology for the low-income group of people should be as simple as their daily life. Giving recommendations for simple dwelling design and changing people’s behaviour for a better living are the concerns of this research. A field-survey was conducted in November-December 2010 involving 426 respondents from four low-income kampongs in Surakarta...

Many theories on thermal comfort exist and there are many ways to deliver this in an energy efficient way. Both aspects are often studied in a static way and most of these studies only regard one of the aspects, seldom investigating what influence the way of delivering thermal comfort has on the actual perceived thermal comfort. This paper...
