Greetings ,

I am using passive solar strategies for cooling of a residential house. As such I set-up an airflow network with operable windows to monitor effect of window operations on the temperature of the model.

As part of my thesis i would like to try how a solar chimney/several small ones would affect the airflow in the house. Saw a question like this which remained unanswered.

Did anyone try and managed to do this ?

Yes I did but the question remained largely unanswered.

That question is answered, even if the answer wasn't "officially" accepted. You'd probably be better off using a dedicated airflow solver rather than E+.
