REHVA WORKSHOP: Indoor Environmental Quality Audits

Confirmed Speakers: Manuel Carlos Gameira da Silva, Stefano Corgnati e Clélia Mendonça de Moraes.

REHVA-Course on Indoor Climate Quality Assessment


• Disseminate knowledge on theoretical foundation and practical training in areas related to indoor climate quality in buildings (thermal comfort & indoor air quality)
• Develop skills that enable learners to define the design conditions of indoor environments and to perform its assessment on existing buildings


At the end of the course, trainees will be able to:
• describe the technical, normative and regulatory aspects related to the various areas of analysis of indoor climate quality;
• perform diagnostic quality of the indoor environment and propose improvement measures;
• integrate the knowledge related to Environmental Quality Interior Spaces in professional activities related to design, construction, installation , operation, licensing and maintenance of buildings and systems;
• act as agents for knowledge dissemination related to the discipline, including deep awareness of the need to harmonize the concerns about indoor environmental quality with the need for rational use of energy.


The course will be based on the Guidebook 14 of REHVA entitled Indoor Climate Quality Assessment. In addition to the use of presentation slides by the lecturers, virtual and remote access labs will also be used to allow a better demonstration of lectures. Learners will be invited to play an active role during lectures through the involvement on practical exercises related with the planning of indoor climate quality audits, the collection of data through remote web-access to a running monitoring system, the data reduction and processing and, finally, the elaboration of a report.

City ventilation

Yuguo Li
Department of Mechanical Engineering
The University of Hong Kong
Hong Kong SAR, China

More than 50% of the world's population now lives in cities. The ventilation of these cities- particularly "mega-cities" with large populations and high concentrations of tall buildings-is fundamental for removing heat and airborne pollutants. For example, in Hong Kong, the wind speed in one monitoring station has reduced by 0.6 m/s per decade since 1968 and 0.35 m/s per decade since 1995. The same decreasing trend is also observed in some other mega-cities. Reduced city ventilation is a major cause of the heat island effect and a determinant of urban air quality. Unlike buildings, studying city ventilation is in general challenged by the horizontal and vertical spatial variability; complex interaction of thermal convection along the building walls and wind flows; and difficulties in large-scale field measurement. Detailed simulations at the city level are difficult because the data collected is usually local. Existing wind engineering studies have focused on one building or a building cluster, and urban air pollution and heat island research have also been local, at the scale of the urban street canyon, while meteorological studies have mostly considered urban buildings as roughness elements.

We have applied field measurement, small-scale tests, computational methods and theoretical analyses for city ventilation with Hong Kong as an example. Here we first describe our recent effort in extending the concepts of building ventilation to city ventilation, such as ventilation rate and ventilation effectiveness. We shall describe the major driving forces of city ventilation, strategies for improving city ventilation, as well as how city ventilation impacts on urban heat island and air pollution.
