displacement ventilation

Demand efficient ventilation systems! Stall krav pa effektiva ventilations system!

Ventilation systems perform a number of tasks. They must remove contamination/pollution, they act as heat/cold transporters and they must create a satisfactory room climate without causing draughts. States that users must be aware of the limitations of ventilation systems and that ventilation systems are not able to carry out all tasks completely satisfactorily. Compares the efficiencies of displacement and mixing systems and gives guide values for temperature differences between room air and supply air for office and industrial applications.

Quality improvements in displacement ventilation. Kvalitetsforbedring ved fortrengningsventilasjon.

Gives a history of the development of air conditioning, and displacement ventilation in particular. Discusses the constant problem of working environments - contamination, and the 'side effects' of economy measures resulting from the 1974 oil crisis. Refers to collaboration between HVAC engineers and the health authorities. Recommends the use of displacement ventilation because of its improvement in air quality. Considers the problems caused by the use of floor coverings and filled carpets in particular.

Displacement ventilation in theory and practice. Deplacerande ventilation i teori och praktik.

Discusses two main methods of fan-assisted air supply to a room - mixing ventilation and displacement ventilation. Gives a detailed account of the effects which furniture and the opening of doors have on a room and discussses factors such as vertical temperature variations, air velocity at floor level. Illustrates these effects in diagram form. Notes difficulty in translating older comfort criteria for use in displacement ventilation.
