3rd AIVC Conference "Energy efficient domestic ventilation systems for achieving acceptable indoor air quality" London, UK, 20-23 September 1982

Explores the various roles that mathematical models can play in the design of energy efficient ventilation systems. Uses an example (an existing terraced house) to illustrate how models may be used to investigate the energy implications and air distribution patterns of a range of mechanical andnatural ventilation options. Identifies key parameters needed for accurate results, and compares predicted infiltration rates with actual measurements taken in the house. Concludes that models of proven validity are an invaluable aid in ventilation design studies.
