Room Air Stratification in Combined Chilled Ceiling and Displacement Ventilation Systems
Radiant chilled ceilings (CC) with displacement ventilation (DV) represent a promising integrated system design that combines the energy efficiency of both sub-systems with the opportunity for
improved ventilation performance resulting from the thermally stratified environment of DV systems. The purpose of this study was to conduct laboratory experiments for a typical U.S. interior zone
office to investigate how room air stratification is affected by the ratio of cooling load removed by a chilled ceiling to the total cooling load, #, for two different chilled ceiling configurations.
