12th International BUILDAIR-Symposium 2021 [AIVC endorsed]

The 12th International BUILDAIR Symposium will take place on June 25 and 26, 2021 – as a bilingual online conference, in view of the corona situation. The meeting again offers an ambitious programme. Among other things, the presentations will deal with measuring techniques, gluing and sealing difficult details, minimizing the air permeability of materials, quality assurance for very technology-intensive objects and measuring technology for very tall buildings.

Checking “fabric first” really works: in-construction tests using thermography

The UK Government strategy for all new homes to be built to zero carbon standards by 2016 is based upon a “fabric first” approach to design. This means prioritising energy efficiency improvements to the building envelope through: increasing overall levels of insulation; reducing thermal bridging; and making buildings more airtight. However, recent research has raised concerns about the standards that are actually achieved in the construction of new housing.

Whole field mapping of temperature pattern in the near zone of an elevated displacement diffuser

This paper deals with the effect of discharging the air from a diffuser elevated above the floor. The temperatures have been measured and the airflow patterns visualised close to a diffuser for displacement ventilation, results from the whole-field method (using infrared thermography) were images of different colours representing different temperatures of the air close to the diffuser.. The aim of the measurements was to see how the elevations of the diffuser above floor level and the thermal jet length of the supply could affect the near zone.

Infrared thermography.
