A study was conducted to evaluate the performance of displacement ventilation systems for small offices, large offices with partitions, classrooms, and industrial workshops under U.S. thermal and flow boundary conditions such as a high cooling load. Based on the results from Scandinavian countries and the investigation of U.S. buildings, guidelines for designing displacement ventilation in the United States were established.
