With over 100 references, the document is divided into sections on: previous international energy studies, ventilation rate standards and requirements, mechanical ventilation, "mixed mode" or "hybrid" systems, natural ventilation, infiltration in schools, and indoor air quality.
Summarises research into the use and application of heat pumps in ventilation heat recovery systems. Discusses types of heat pumps, residential ventilation systems incorporating heat pumps and non-residential heat pump ventilation systems. All the references cited are listed and are available through AIVC.
The focus of this review is on natural ventilation strategies and systems, highlighting design features and associated research. It outlines relevant papers dealing with: the main elements of natural ventilation research; the fundamental equations, driving forces and associated factors; the design and utilisation of windows, purpose provided openings, passive stacks and advances natural systems, with any design guidance where applicable; and case studies showing where such systems can be effectively installed, e.g. industrial buildings and libraries.
The bibliography summarises research into the health, energy and design aspects of the various systems used in garage ventilation. It contains the main problems associated with car parks, research into naturally ventilated garages, research into large scale bus and hanger type garages, and small scale car park problems and solutions.
