The air movement and the distribution of CO2 in naturally ventilated office room and an atrium is investigated using computational fluid dynamics. The results show that natural ventilation is capable of achieving acceptable CO2 levels. Adequate comfort levels could also be achieved for a typical UK summer climate in both types of buildings. Both wind-driven and buoyancy-driven flows are considered.
