Study on Distribution and Deposition of House Dust by Different Ventilation Systems in a Full-scale Residential Room

House dust contamination has recently become an important issue in the residential indoor environment. This study evaluated ventilation systems for removing house dust efficiently in a full-scale residential room. Experiments and simulations were performed to investigate diffusion and deposition of house dust by different ventilation systems. Riboflavin particles were used as the house dust. Two kinds of ventilation systems were considered, namely ceiling exhaust and slit exhaust.

Headquarters of the comisión nacional del mercado de valores. Double façade simulation study

Nowadays, the use of translucent or transparent façades as lining of another façade is increasing.

Application of airtightness to healthcare buildings

The thrust of airtightness specification and testing is derived from energy considerations. The application to healthcare buildings and specialist laboratory facilities embodies the same principles but derives the appropriateness of the criteria with reference to [a] producing controlled and controllable cascading pressure zones and [b] specifying or quantifying the potential exposure in the event of failure of mechanical ventilation.

Selecting whole house ventilation strategies to meet proposed ASHRAE standard 62.2: energy cost considerations.

ASHRAE Standard 62.2P is being proposed to address residential ventilation issues. As housing, especially new housing, gets more airtight and better insulated, it has become clear that many homes are under-ventilated. The Standard contains requirements that provide minimum ventilation rates and source control measures necessary for acceptable indoor air quality. This paper uses previously reported analytical techniques to compare the energy costs of various ventilation strategies for a wide variety of climates and housing types.

Effect of central fans and in-duct filters on deposition rates of ulrafine and fine particles in an occupied townhouse

The deposition rates of particles in a town-house with a forced air circulation and in-duct filters have been calculated for that study. It appears that the use of central forced-air fan along with in-duct filters allows the reduction of particle concentration. And it is more effective than reducing ventilation by closing windows or making homes more insulated.

Determining ventilation strategy to defend indoor environment against contamination by integrated accessibility of contaminant source (IACS)

How to avoid or reduce the influence of suddenly released contaminant when emergency occurs ? A 3D Full scale room with displacement and mixing ventilation system is numerically studied assuming contaminant released at certain positions in the room. IACS is adopted as an index that can be applied to determine ventilation strategy with the aim of defending indoor environment against contamination.

Car park ventilation system : performance evaluation

Investigations in six car parks were carried out. Measurements of carbon monoxide levels were made during the peak hours to compare the performance of the different types of ventilation systems : the performance is better with a combined supply and exhaust system than the exhaust only system though more energy is consumed.

Induced ventilation of a one-story real-size building

In that study, induced ventilation is experimentally explored in a small well-insulated manufactured home, located in the northern edge of the Negev desert in Israel. Temperature monitoring was performed inside and outside the building in summer along with velocity measurements inside the building. The results show that with induced ventilation the air temperature inside the home is like the ambient temperature, whereas, when no openings, the temperature inside the manufactured home is higher than the ambient.

Design, monitoring and evaluation of a low energy office building with passive cooling by night ventilation

For that study, 12 office rooms of a "Solar Optimised Building" in Germany have been monitored. The data have been evaluated by a new method for analysis that deals with short and long term measurements and with building simulation. A comparison between monitored data and simulation of a building with passive cooling by night ventilation is made on a long period.

Effects of outdoor air conditions on hybrid air conditioning based on task/ambient strategy with natural and mechanical ventilation in office buildings

The aim of this study is to clarify the effects of indoor environmental characteristics of hybrid - natural and mechanical - air conditioning systems in office buildings during intermediate seasons. The other objective was to obtain design data.
