2nd AIVC Conference "Building design for minimum air infiltration" Stockholm, Sweden, 21-23 September 1981

Describes LBL's Mobile Infiltration Test Unit (MITU) which spent the 1980-1981 winter in the field collecting the data required for infiltration modelling. Data included measured infiltration rates, surface pressures, wind velocities, indoor and outdoor temperatures, leakage area and leakage distribution. Comparisons of measured infiltration rates with values calculated from surface pressures (using MITU) have shown no decrease in accuracy when a square-root flow model is used instead of the general power-fit model of leakage.
