Building Simulation '91


Data sets for validation.

The purpose of the proposed task is to create databases for validation on several different buildings. Data are needed as inputs for simulation programs (e.g. pressure coefficients, infiltration parameters) and more data, including air flow patterns and differential pressures, will be used to compare the results of the simulation programs with the measured values. These data bases shall contain high quality measurements results, on a given building, of climatic data, building data, inhabitant data and flow patterns.

The validation of a multiple tracer gas technique for the determination of airflows between three interconnected cells.

This paper describes the extension of the previously described UMIST technique for the determination of airflows between two interconnected cells to the case of three connected cells, and gives the results obtained for a series of validation experiments carried out under controlled conditions.
