Abstract: The solar chimney is a passive device that is applied to enhance room ventilation. The chimney could be vertical or inclined. The chimney inclination angle and air inlet opening position are important parameters that greatly affects flow pattern and ventilation rate inside the room. In this study, the effect of air inlet opening position and chimney inclination angle on air change per hour and air flow pattern inside the room was numerically investigated. A numerical simulation using CFD code was used to predict flow pattern. Then the results were compared with published experimental measurements. Find out the effect of air inlet opening position and inclination angle of chimney on mass flow rate at outlet of the chimney.
