10th AIVC Conference - Progress and trends in air infiltration and ventilation research (Book of Proceedings) | 1989 | English
It is particularly important to be aware of the air flow pattern in a building when determining indoor air quality problems or calculating space conditioning loads for energy consumption.
The AIVC nowadays is an established Centre on infiltration and ventilation research. It is well known throughout the world. This position has not been reached easily. But years of hard working and critical managing of the Centre were a necessity.
The COMIS workshop (Conjunction of Multizone Infiltration Specialists), using a multi-national team, is planning to develop a reliable, smooth running multizone infiltration model on a modular base.
The distribution of wind pressure on a building envelope is governed by the size and shape of the structure and the turbulence characteristics of the wind.
The air change rate in existing, older blocks of flats having natural ventilation has been measured by the tracer gas method. Measurements were made in the buildings in as-found condition.
The air flow within a room, the interchange of air between rooms and the interchange of air between a building and the exterior are topics which until today have received little attention by researchers.
This paper describes a set of experiments conducted in a three bedroom house in order to identify the leakage distribution of the building and the air flow rate through the on-purpose designed opening of the interior doors.
Whole-building pressurisation tests can quantify the air-leakiness of a building's external envelope. The resulting information can be used in assessing the quality of the building fabric.
VAV - air conditioning system makes it possible to control indoor conditions even when the heat loads are changing. But this is possible only when each part of the system works as it is intended to work.
A method is being developed for visualization of air flow with application to the indoor problems of heating, ventilating and air conditioning.
A comparison of different methods of calculating interzonal airflows by multiple tracer gas decay tests. | 1989 | English
Measurement methods based upon multiple tracer gas techniques have become an established branch of the study of air infiltration and interzonal air movements.
This paper gives an overview of air infiltration and ventilation developments and trends in Norway. The paper is divided into an infiltration part and aventilation part.
Displacement flow systems are becoming popular, especially in Scandinavia, for comfort ventilation.
Buoyancy-driven air flow in a closed half scale stairwell model: velocity and temperature measurements. | 1989 | English
This paper describes an experimental study of the buoyancy-driven flow and the associated energy transfer within a closed, halfscale stairwell model.
Public policy considerations and the development of a code for the control of radon in residences. | 1989 | English
Building codes that address radon control in residential buildings are a relatively new development in the larger trend toward increased efforts to understand and control indoor air quality.
Coupled air flow and heat conduction model for mechanically ventilated foundations. | 1989 | English
Rising moisture from the ground has caused quite a lot of damage on foundations of Swedish buildings. It is in some constructions possible to prevent this by mechanical ventilation below the floor or below the concrete slab.
Development of a microprocessor-controlled tracer gas system and measurement of ventilation in a scale model. | 1989 | English
This paper describes the development of a microprocessor-controlled tracer gas system which is capable of collecting a large number of tracer gas samples at short or long intervals.
France is one of the European countries where ventilation has the most advanced regulation.
Canadian research into residential ventilation and combustion venting revealed that the installed performance of exhaust equipment, ducting passages, and site-built chimneys was largely unknown.
