2016 Data in Brief  
This article presents the datasets which were the results of the study explained in the research paper 'Anti-short-circuit device: a new solution for short-circuiting in windcatcher and improvement of natural ventilation performance' (P. Nejat, J.K. Calautit, M.Z. Abd. Majid, B.R. Hughes, F. Jomehzadeh, 2016) [1] which introduces a new technique to reduce or prevent short-circuiting in a two-sided windcatcher and also lowers the indoor CO 2 concentration and improve the ventilation

The datasets includes indoor airflow, ventilation rates and CO 2 concentration data at several points in the flow field. The CAD geometry of the windcatcher models are also included.
