Abstract

This study examines the performance of double skin envelops to utilize natural ventilation and reduce the heating load in office buildings. Field measurement was conducted in a three-floor building for two types of double skin envelopes. Type A was separated by the floor and type B was connected through three floors. The results showed that both types could provide sufficient flow rate to the indoor space. However, only type B could be utilized for natural ventilation on a clear sky day by preheating the air in the cavity.
