A set of reporting guidelines has been established. The guidelines take into account the need for data concerning airflow within buildings and air exchange between a building and its surroundings. They also deal with issues such as pollutant production and transport, thermal properties and measurements of buildings and comfort related issues. The comprehensive nature of these guidelines should enable a large amount of data to be accrued in a form suitable for computer modelling and validation work. The extensive use of computers in research has thus been considered and an application is under development to allow a research report to be entered directly into a relational database according to the framework of the guidelines. This will allow a research report to be directly accessible in the AIVC numerical database along side the data it refers to.
