Design models to handle radiative and convective exchange in a room.

The traditional handling method of handling heat exchange in a room for design purposes was to suppose that all heat from the plant, radiative as well as convective, was input at a so called "air temperature". This is an evident misnomer, since air temperature as such cannot drive longwave radiation as themodel actually assumed. The "environmental temperature" concept has been introduced in the UK to get round the difficulty. This paper presents an analysis of when an approach along these lines may be logically acceptable.

The Eighth AIVC Conference - summing up.

Summary of papers in the Proceedings of the Eighth AIVC Conference. Headings include measurement techniques, calculation techniques, design (control of the internal environment) and the positive aspects of ventilation and infiltration.

An overview of the R-2000 home program design and installation guidelines for ventilation systems.

This paper outlines the development of guidelines for the design and installation of ventilation systems installed in energy efficient homes constructed under the R-2000 Home Program of Energy, Mines and Resources Canada. The guidelines represent one of the first initiatives to develop comprehensive requirements for the design and installation of mechanical ventilation systems for residential buildings in Canada. The guidelines outline requirements for a continuous supply of ventilation air to dilute and therefore control contaminants produced from dispersed sources in a home (e.g.
