In order to keep the environment in an air-conditioned room comfortable, it is important to anticipate the air velocity and temperature fields precisely. The numerical code, solving simultaneously the Navier-Stokes equations governing flow field inside and outside the room and the heat conduction equation applying to walls, are developed. The assumption that the heat transfer coefficient between the fluid and the surface of solids is not used. This code is applied to investigate the cooling process of a cubic shell. The computational results agree with the experimental results. We also investigated the same process of the cubic shells whose walls are internally or externally insulated. The difference of the amount of heat transfer will be discussed.
