In the internally-cooled liquid desiccant dehumidifier (ICLDD), cooling medium is introduced to carry away the vaporization latent heat, which enhances effectiveness of heat and mass transfer process between liquid desiccant and air. Numerical method is adopted in this paper to analyze the performance of ICLDD. Theoretical model of heat and mass transfer process is established and verified by available experimental results.
Surface condensation and mould affect about 15 percent of the UK housing stock. This paper reports BRE studies in occupied dwellings on the effectiveness in various situations of a range of remedial measures, which included improvements to thermal insulation and heating, and the provision of extractor fans and dehumidifiers. The flats and 2-storey houses involved were all of traditional construction with brick walls and pitched roofs.
Surface condensation and mould affect about 15% of the UK housing stock. This paper reports BRE work undertaken in occupied dwellings to identify the effectiveness of a range of remedial measures in various situations. The remedies investigated include the improvements to insulation levels, andheating systems, the provision of extract fans and dehumidifiers. The studies were undertaken in both flats and 2-storey houses, all of traditional construction with brick walls and pitched roofs.
Examines the causes of condensation problems and ways of reducing or eliminating them. Deals with diffusion through the building envelope, mechanical dehumidification and ventilation. Considers condensation inside cavities and roof spaces.
