Copyright © 2014 by ASME. The natural ventilation contributes the improvement of internal thermal comfort and internal air quality when applied properly. An investigation of single-sided double opening was performed to a 3-dimensional rectangular-box room using a commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software package of ESI group. Sixteen models with different location of double-openings were investigated. The large eddy simulation (LES) turbulence model was used to predict the air's flow rate and air flow pattern. The governing equations for large eddy motion was obtained by filtering the Navier-Stokes and continuity equations. From the overall results, the lowest and the highest air flow rates were obtained to be 1.14 x 10-3 m3/s and 2.12 x100 m3/s respectively. The location & arrangement of opening influences the air flow rate and air flow pattern.
