9th AIVC Conference "Effective ventilation" Gent, Belgium, 12-15 September 1988

This paper deals with field experience of airborne moisture transfer problems in houses. Two types of phenomena are discussed in more detail; the infiltration of moist air from crawl spaces and the propagation of moist air produced in kitchens. A modified depressurisation test is described to determine the air tightness of ground floors. A case study is briefly discussed where different remedial measures have been tested to evaluate the moisture removal effectiveness in kitchens. A multi-channel dewpoint measurement system has been used to determine the ventilation efficiency experimentally.
