Abstract: Ventilation refers to the process of supplying external air into a space, which can be as small as an animal burrow, and as large as a city. The concept of ventilation includes external airflow rate, overall airflow direction and air distribution within the space. The speaker will discuss the importance and concept of ventilation for our buildings and high-rise compact cities. Examples will include control of exhaled substances (droplets) for infection control in a room, and some preliminary understanding of wind flows and buoyancy-driven flows in Hong Kong.
