Project Description

Radiant chilled ceilings with displacement ventilation (DV) represent a promising integrated system design that combines the energy efficiency of both sub-systems with the opportunity for improved ventilation performance resulting from the thermally stratified environment of DV systems. It was experimentally shown that the combined system is energy efficient, robust and able to provide high indoor environmental quality.
