An Introduction to Natural Ventilation for Buildings

J. Paul Guyer, P.E., R.A., Fellow ASCE, Fellow AEI

This course contains information on design features and practices affecting natural ventilation in buildings. Guidelines based on the best available data are provided. Conflicts between differing guidelines will arise in some cases. Resolution of these conflicts is left to the designer's discretion, since each must be handled on a case-by-case basis. Comfort, life-cycle costs, maintenance concerns and functional efficiency should be the primary criteria for such decisions, and designers should draw on their previous experience as well as on the guidelines presented here. In most cases, there are several alternative approaches to achieving a desired effect.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
