Challenge: Natural Ventilation
Natural ventilation analysis is important to understanding how air behaves in a space and whether ventilation is adequate. This not only improves occupant comfort and performance but also helps optimize HVAC systems and reduce energy use. The Challenge Topic is a broad category, but each contribution should ask and answer a more specific question. Four examples of more specific questions are listed above, but any question that falls under the Challenge Topic is acceptable.
The objective is to catalyze crowd-sourced submissions to Project StaSIO through execution of an online competition, and promote the sharing of graphics across the building performance simulation community. This competition is open to organizations or individuals who want to submit through either of the paths.
This competition is open to both individuals and project teams. Participants can submit one or more case studies or graphics through the online submission forms on Project StaSIO’s ‘Contribute’ page. Each participant can make multiple submissions and all submissions would be considered separately for the competition.
As a part of the submission process, the participant is required to identify the building performance question that is being answered through the graphic, or link to one or more of the sample questions defined on the ‘Questions Menu’ on the website.
