Measurement and Analysis on Natural Ventilation of Rural Residential Buildings in ChaoShan Area
In this paper, the present usage of natural ventilation of rural residential buildings in ChaoShan area is in-depth studied through the analysis on thermal environment data of continuous monitoring indoor and outdoor in the transition-site season from several representative typical rural residential buildings in Guangdong ChaoShan area. It revealed the differences between “cheng” and patio, and the fact that wind pressure ventilation is still dominant, because that buoyancy driven ventilation is difficult to form in such houses during transition seasons when generally rain comes with low temperature. And it also pointed out the effect that the elements of modern house (such as: sliding window, window screens, window security and large household appliance) are implanted as the raise of population and living standards had brought to the thermal environment on traditional buildings.
