Abstract

This study investigates the indoor environment generated by localized chilled beam coupled with chilled ceiling (LCBCC) and compares it with the environment generated by mixing ventilation coupled with chilled ceiling (CCMV). The experiments were performed in a mock-up of single office (4.1 m × 4.0 m × 3.1 m, L× W× H). Thermal manikin was used to simulate room occupant. The LCBCC was placed above the workstation to improve the environment locally. Combinations of indoor temperature of 26 °C and 28 °C and ventilation airflow rate of 10 and 13 l/s were studied. The total heat load in the room was 60 W/m2 (including simulation of solar radiation and miscellaneous heat loads). The results showed that uniform thermal conditions (differences smaller than 1 °K) were generated in the occupied zone with the studied system configurations. The LCBCC diminished the effect of the buoyancy flow from the simulated window and this resulted in more acceptable thermal conditions at the workstation.
