Overcoming technical barriers to low-energy natural ventilation in office type buildings in moderate and cold climates.
With faster computers and better techniques of creating user-friendly interfaces it has become
possible to write a programme, with a reasonable computing time for an ordinary PC, coupling a
thermal model with a ventilation model. It is also possible to make it user friendly so it can be
available to everybody involved at the design stage. Our aims while developing this model have been
to create a robust model with an easy-to-use interface and thus make the tool available to a large
