Abstract

The results of experiment on the performance of natural ventilation by insulation thickness and height system of solar chimney are described. The 3-inside wall was made of concrete and 1-wall was made of glass. The two kinds of model experiment were performed. One was the varition of the 60cm, 90cm and 120cm of solar chimney, the other was the variation of the insulation thickness 10mm and 50mm and without insulation of outside wall of solar cimney. As the temperature difference between bottom and top expressed $1.7\sim2.9^{\circ}C$, air velocity measured $0.5\sim0.8m/s$ and ventilation rate was $194.4m^3/h$ in the case of the 120cm height of solar chimney, the respect of natural ventilation performance was superior to others cases in the first model experiment. Though the case of 120cm height of solar chimney was attached 50mm insulation the ventilation rate was not so much as the case of solar chimney was attached 10mm insulation. the temperature difference between bottom and top was the largest in the other cases. From this research, the natural ventilation performance of solar chimney was affected by not only height and insulation thickness of solar chimney but also wind velocity and directon.
