AbstractSpatial distributions of air velocity, turbulent kinetic energy and temperature were measured in a full-scale office room (7 .32 X 4. 72 X 2.44 m) under nonisothermal conditions. Numerical simulation was also conducted with the computational fluid dynamics code 'EXACT3'. The numerical simulation results agreed with the measurements qualitatively but were quantitatively different. Possible reasons for these differences and future research needs are discussed in this paper.
