The amount of air infiltration in a building, for given weather data, depends on the leakage and its distribution on the building envelope. In simulations of 17 designs of multiunit, multistorey buildings in Berlin, based on a typical meteorological year we obtained a wide range of infiltration values that varied according to the floor plan, the number and location of wall openings and cracks and the flow resistance relationship between the inside and the exterior of the building.
