Reports tests of air leakage made in the joints in a hospital building in gothenberg using a special pressure chamber. Describes test method and gives the values from five readings ina table. The required standard was that "the maximum leakage of air would be 300 litres per m run joint per hour at a pressure differential of 10mm of water". Tests showed that the required standard was met and perhaps that the amount of attention given by contractors and owners to joint problems has increased.
