The past few decades have seen a considerable change in terms of technological innovation. The recent technological trend is a shift towards the incorporation of natural processes such as hydro, solar and wind in design and implementation. For the purpose of this report, a miniaturised solar chimney test rig was constructed which utilises the principles of natural ventilation. Analysis of similar types of technologies was conducted and various ideas considered in the construction of the test rig. Computational fluid dynamics software was also used in conjunction with the experiment to see the similarities associated with the experiment and software package, taking into account the limitation of various instruments. A comprehensive experimental and theoretical approach was developed and reported.
