CoolVent is an airflow network tool that couples energy and airflow calculations to model the unique characteristics of buoyancy-driven flow. The tool allows modeling the effects of stack ventilation, cross ventilation and a combination of both, for four (and soon five) typical building geometries. You can define custom weather conditions to run steady state (“snapshot”) simulations or use weather data to run transient (“24-hour”) simulations.
