Chapter 4: Ventilation Systems


Research on ventilation systems is presented in Chapter 4. Detailed simulations of extant and proposed ventilation systems were conducted to determine optimal paths. The research also investigated a smart ventilation controller and passive ventilation systems. The role of commissioning ventilation systems is also discussed.
