Abstract
For the purpose of improving the effect of natural ventilation and thermal comfort of a traditional stilt houseslocated inSouthern Yunnan Province. Theindoor and outdoor windenvironment of the existingStilt houseswere simulated by Airparksoftware, thefactors of indoor ventilation effect and thermal comfort were analyzed,and the effects of the sizeand location of the windows and vents on natural ventilation were analyzed.The results indicated thatthe size and location of the windowscould improve the indoor natural ventilation effectandthe indoor air temperaturereduced of 2.4°C in summer,while the role of the vent is not obvious. Furthermore,the design suggestions and strategiesfor enhancing the thermal comfortof a traditional stilt houselocated in theSouthern Yunnan Provincewere presented.
