Abstract

The thermal comfort level distribution in high-rise residential buildings is seldomly checked in the Netherlands. At building scale, height and orientation were found to be the crucial parameters in the thermal comfort distribution in a regular high-rise residential building. At room scale, privacy and safety were found to be closely related to the use of the natural ventilation system. Based on the findings, different strategies are proposed to improve thermal comfort, concentrating on the summer period.
