A solar chimney is a type of thermal ventilation system that is powered by the sun. It is a strategy for enhancing natural ventilation and also supplying heating and cooling inside a constructing by leveraging energy from the sun to enhance natural stack effect ventilation throughout a building. It can also be used to generate renewable energy. This paper describes the designing of thermal chimney and effect of temperature, velocity and pressure in the three different scenarios
