Bas Turk, the winner of the REHVA student competition, has triumphed once again by securing first place in the HVAC World Student Competition. Turk's exceptional work titled "Quantifying the potential of overheating countermeasures on a humanitarian shelter through measurements and building performance simulation" made a strong impression at the ASHRAE Annual Conference in Tampa, Florida.
Turk's journey began with his victory in the national competition organized by TVVL, the Dutch association for building services engineers. This success propelled him to the European level of the REHVA student competition, where his innovative research and dedication earned him the title in May, in Brussels.
Turk's research focused on addressing overheating issues in humanitarian shelters, an increasingly urgent concern due to climate change. Through meticulous measurements and building performance simulations, he quantified the potential impact of various countermeasures.
