Air infiltration through revolving doors may have significant impact on the heating load of commercial and institutional spaces, and may create discomfort to people. This paper modifies a 40-year old model by Schutrum et al. (1961), composed of two components:

(1) estimation of air exchange between one segment of the revolving door and the indoor/outdoor,

(2) estimation of net air infiltration rate.
