Example text

This mixing leads to weak stratification in the space and, for simple analysis, the space may be treated as well-mixed and having a uniform temperature (Fig. 2a). As the ventilation proceeds, the mixing causes the mean temperature T in the interior, and hence the reduced gravity gʹ, to decrease towards those of the exterior air (Figs. 2a, b). 1-i) where the expression for Q may be obtained from tracing pressure along the streamline and applying Bernoulli’s theorem. 1-ii) where the term (gʹhW )1/2 describes the speed of the exchange flow.

Once entering the space, the cool ambient air sinks and mixes with the original warm air (hence the name mixing ventilation). This mixing leads to weak stratification in the space and, for simple analysis, the space may be treated as well-mixed and having a uniform temperature (Fig. 2a). As the ventilation proceeds, the mixing causes the mean temperature T in the interior, and hence the reduced gravity gʹ, to decrease towards those of the exterior air (Figs. 2a, b). 1-i) where the expression for Q may be obtained from tracing pressure along the streamline and applying Bernoulli’s theorem.

The term describing relative density deficiency 32 Some preliminaries on the right-hand side of Eq. 3-ii) so that Qb2 Qt2 + cb2 ab2 ct2 at2 1 2 = gα (T − T0 ) H. 5-iv) Mass conservation dictates that, at steady state, the mass flux of air into the space through the lower vent equals the mass flux of air leaving the space through the upper vent: Qb = Qt = Q. 5-v) Therefore, it follows that 1 2 1 1 Q + 2 2 = gα (T − T0 ) H. 2-i) may be used to describe the temperature excess (T – T0 ) in terms of the heat flux HH .
