Modelling coupled heat and airflow: ping-pong vs onions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

By means of a case study involving a severe case of coupled heat and air flow in buildings, this paper aims to quantify the differences resulting from different methods (ping-pong and onion approach) for linking heat and air flow models. The main conclusion is that when used improperly, the onion method will have implications in terms of computing resources, but - more seriously - the ping-pong method may generate substantial errors.
