TN 17: Ventilation Strategy - A Selected Bibliography

Review of literature on choice of ventilation strategy for residential, industrial and other buildings.

TN 16: Leakage Distribution in Buildings

Examines those factors which can influence leakage distribution, including building style, construction quality, materials, ageing, pressure and variations in humidity.

TN 13.1: 1984 Wind Pressure Workshop - Proceedings


TN 13: Wind Pressure Data Requirements for Air Infiltration Calculations

A review of the problems associated with satisfying the wind pressure data requirements of air infiltration models.

TN 11: The Validation and Comparison of Mathematical Models of Air Infiltration

Contains analyses of ten models developed in five participating countries. These range in complexity from 'single-cell' to 'multi-cell' approaches. Also contains numerical and climatic data for fourteen dwellings compiled to produce three key datasets which were used in model validation study.

TN 10: Techniques and instrumentation for the measurement of air infiltration in buildings

Air infiltration and ventilation heat loss can account for a substantial proportion of a buildlng's space heating demand. Therefore, in the planning of energy conservation measures, the influence of air exchange demands very careful consideration. Unfortunately, air infiltration is particularly difficult to measure. This is because not only is it dependent on building airtightness, and hence the quality of construction, but it is also significantly influenced by prevailing climatic conditions, surrounding terrain and the actions of occupants.
