Preprint ASTM Symposium on measured air leakage performance of buildings Philadelphia USA April 2-3 1984 23pp. 7 figs. 4 tabs. #DATE 02:04:1984 in English

Carries out measurements of the air infiltration rate of 3 large single cell buildings using the tracer dilution method. The purpose is to determine whether or not there are any special difficulties in using the tracer dilution method in this type of building, prior to emabarking on a more substantial measurement program. Uses nitrous oxide and sulphur hexafluoride as tracers. Finds both to be satisfactory, but concludes that SF6 in conjunction with a portable gas chromatograph performs more reliably when used for on-site measurements.
