Abstract

In school buildings high levels of Indoor Air Quality are required for the specific susceptibility
to airborne pollution of occupants, but most of the data published in the scientific literature
indicate that classroom ventilation in many schools is still inadequate. The low investment costs
and the easy implementation of the Building Automation Systems allow a widely application
in the existing buildings. This work studies the natural ventilation mechanisms based mainly
on the stack effect of the central atrium and of the stairwells in order to design the building
automation control systems.
