Abstract

In this paper, previous research findings on the characteristics of diffuser air jets and airflow in the occupied regions as well as their relationships are reviewed and summarized. Results from different sources are compared. It was found that it is possible to predict velocity, turbulence, and temperature characteristics in the occupied region based on the characteristics of diffuser air jets. However, methods that can quantify the effect of internal obstructions such as office partitions and furniture and the location of heat sources need to be developed.
