The objective of this Industrial CASE PhD project is to develop novel mathematical models for the prediction of thermal comfort and energy consumption in green buildings. Wall heat transfers for buoyancy driven flows will be investigated experimentally in order to develop and validate theoretical models. These will then be incorporated into current dynamic thermal models to improve the accuracy of energy calculations in comfort studies.
