This forms a summary of the IEA ECBCS Annex VIII study into the behaviour of occupants with regard to ventilation. It assesses the extent to which the actions of occupants can be modified in order to minimise energy use yet maintain adequate indoor air quality. Chapters cover observational techniques, energy loss due to window opening, reasons for window opening and the resultant energy savings from modified use of windows.

The objective of this is to review the various definitions associated with ventilation efficiency studies and to outline the physical concepts, measurement methods and calculation techniques. A detailed bibliography gives references to articles useful for more detailed research. An appendix presents the country of affiliation of authors' references in the bibliography, in order to assist in comparing the needs of different countries or climatic regions.
This document presents the proceedings of the AIVC's Moisture Workshop, held at the Building Research Association of New Zealand (BRANZ) on 23 March 1987. It includes the opening address by the Hon. Margaret Shields, Associate Minister of Housing, New Zealand, and the full text of the ten papers presented, together with a record of the discussion.

The Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre's world wide survey of current research into air infiltration and related topics, provides organisations in participating countries with regularly updated information about ongoing research in this field. In particular, the major objectives of the survey are to encourage the international cross-fertilization of research ideas and to promote co-operation between research organisations in different countries.
