An algorithm for modelling of the heat transfer in storage halls at different combinations of open doors and smoke vents is developed. The models allow numerical simulations of velocity, pressure and temperature fields in the halls in cases of transient and steady state conditions, taking into account the indoor buoyancy, heat sources, heat transfer through the building envelopes and outdoor wind pressures. The models are solved numerically via finite volume method in order to estimate the necessity of additional heating at a design stage of a courier logistic storage hall, situated in the temperate climate zone, at the hardest winter conditions of the region. Recommendations about the organization of the heating and the cargo input are done based on the analyses of the fluid flow and thermal fields at the modelled scenarios.
