A windcatcher is a structure fitted on the roof of a building for natural ventilation; it extracts the inside stale air to the outside to the outside and supplies the outside fresh air into the building interior space working by pressure difference between outside and inside of the building and using ventilation principles of passive stacks and wind towers, respectively. In this paper, air flow through a three-dimentional and real-sized room fitted with a two-sided windcatcher is investigated numerically, using a commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software package.
