Natural Ventilation
the airflow is due to wind and buoyancythrough cracks in the building envelope or purposely installedopenings.
Single-Sided Ventilation:
Limited to zones close to the openings
Cross-Ventilation:
Two or more openings on opposite walls -covers a larger zone than thesingle-sided openings
Stack Ventilation:
Buoyancy-driven gives larger flows
Windcacthers
:
Wind and buoyancy driven -effective in warm and temperate climates
Solar-Induced Ventilation:
using the sun to heat building elements to increase buoyancy -moreeffective in warm climates

Ventilation
the airflowis due to wind and buoyancy through purposelyinstalled openings in the building envelopesupplemented, when necessary, by mechanicalsystems.The mechanical component of the hybridsystem can be a fan for increasing theventilation rate, and/or a heat exchanger forheating or cooling the outdoor supply air.
