Abstract: The coupling strategies for natural ventilation between building simulation (BS) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) are discussed and coupling methodology for natural ventilation is highlighted. Two single-zone cases have been used to validate coupled simulations with full CFD simulations. The main discrepancy factors have also been analyzed. The comparison results suggest that for coupled simulations taking pressure from BS as inlet boundary conditions can provide more accurate results for indoor CFD simulation than taking velocity from BS as boundary conditions. The validation results indicate that coupled simulations can improve indoor thermal environment prediction for natural ventilation taking wind as the major force. With the aids of developed coupling program, coupled simulations between BS and CFD can effectively improve the speed and accuracy in predicting indoor thermal environment for natural ventilation studies. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
