A Chapter of the American Institute of Architects
Stratified Air Ventilation Systems
Presenter: Kishor Khankari, Ph.D., Fellow ASHRAE
Displacement ventilation systems and underfloor air distribution system (UFAD) which are also referred as “stratified air distribution systems” work on the principle of thermal buoyancy –hot air due to lower density rises above the cold air. Stratified distribution systems are becoming popular due to their ability to provide better indoor air quality with low energy demand. This presentation will cover the basics of stratified air distribution systems and discuss various applications showing how design and operational parameters can affect the airflow patterns and temperature distribution and resulting thermal comfort of occupants in the space.
