A dynamic model for the simulation of air movement in multi-room buildings is described. The model is based on steady flow characteristics of the building element and represents an extension of the known theory of the "global" model of steady flow in buildings. In order to analyse the influence of low frequency wind pulsations on the air infiltration rate, a numerical simulation example has been performed: a sixteen-room building exposed to wind disturbance (impulse function). The pressure, mass and energy flow rate response in time were calculated, assuming perfect mixing in all parts of the building.
