Optimal Design of the External Respiration Double Skin Facade
An optimal design is taken on the external respiration double skin facade (DSF) of a office building in Wuhan. The indoor thermal environment of the office units in the building have been simulated by taken computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method, and then the paper analyzes the indoor temperature changes under the condition that the internal airflow status of the DSF for natural ventilation, without shade, vents closed and other cases, discusses the influences of different inner glazed skin’s thermal properties, DSF for active ventilation and different wind speed on indoor thermal environment, according to the simulation results we obtain parameters of relevant optimal design.
