Evaluation of a controlled natural ventilation system.

The project described in this paper has performed simulations using a multi-zone air flow model (4(COMIS)) of three different passive stack ventilation systems. The objective of the simulation calculations was to evaluate system performances and to make suggestions for possible improvements of the systems.

Ventilation in houses with distributed heating systems.

The LTEE laboratory of Hydro-Quebec, in collaboration with Canada Mortgage and Housing conducted an indoor air quality study involving 30 single family detached houses heated with electric baseboard heaters in the vicinity of Trois Rivières during the 1993-94 heating season. The houses were selected according to the measured air leakage at 50 Pa, so as to have a sample distribution similar to the distribution of air leakage of houses in the province of Quebec.
