Inducing Passive Ventilation in Muti-Storeyed Buildings in Small Cities of India

Authors(2) :-Roohul Abad Khan, Amadur Rahman Khan

The Big cities of India are upcoming with astonishing Buildings in terms of Planning and design. But when the small cities of India are taken into account buildings lack in proper planning and design in general. The main focus still rest with active ventilation in building while the passive ventilation system is not only lacking but totally absent. The Study covers the multi storeyed buildings of Aligarh, U.P. India. The present design of building was taken into consideration and the proper points to induce passive ventilation were identified. The Buildings were already completed and are under use. The study suggest the alterations to be done to enable the passive ventilation in the building without altering the building structure. The study concludes that the passive ventilation in the buildings can be done economically without any change in building utility by providing sack ventilation or solar chimneys.
