English abstract:
Patterns of user-based operation of natural ventilation devices (specifically windows) are not
fully understood. Well-documented observational studies of window operation by building
occupants can contribute toward improving the state of knowledge in this area. In this context,
the present paper includes the results of a long-term observational study of users' ventilation
behavior in an office building in Austria. Thereby, the state of occupancy, natural ventilation
actions, and indoor environmental parameters were monitored in four double-occupancy and
two single-occupancy offices over a period of 8 months along with outdoor environmental
parameters. Collected data was analyzed to explore potential relationships between control
actions and environmental conditions inside and outside buildings.
