Congratulations Danyang Jin for being named the inaugural recipient!
Danyang submitted a thesis titled: “Discussion on introducing natural ventilation into underground ventilation system to achieve energy savings.” The main objective of the research project was to determine whether natural ventilation systems can be used in underground space to save energy, particularly in parking lots. The work presented in this project featured calculations performed to estimate ventilation volume as well as the location and size of the ventilation shaft in natural ventilation. The results showed that the application of natural ventilation to underground parking lots was completely feasible, and it could save considerable operating costs each year.
