Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis was used to study the best configuration of roof and side vents under buoyancy driven natural ventilation, which represents the most unfavorable situation for greenhouse cooling. A CFD model was validated and then used to compare ventilation with roof vents and combined roof and sidewall vents. The effects of the distance between opposing sidewall vents and the presence of simple roof ...
