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.
Hagentoft C E, Harderup L E
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.
Riffat S B
France is one of the European countries where ventilation has the most advanced regulation.
Jardinier M
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.
Fugler D
The paper compares air infiltration rate measurements with air leakage measurements in a modem industrial building.
Jones P J, Powell G
A demand controlled air ductwork should be so dimensioned that the flow controllers have good flow and acoustical operation conditions.
Laine J
In order to be validated, the computer programs simulating the air flows in multizone buildings need several measured data sets to be compared with. Such a set was measured on the LESO, a mid-sized administrative building.
Furbringer J M, Compagnon R, Roulet C A, Gadilhe A
1979 a project was launched at Technological Institute, Copenhagen with the purpose of developing a method for continuous measurement of air change rates in occupied dwellings.
Kvisgaard B, Collet P F
This paper explores the results of air infiltration and ventilation research carried out in Canada over the last decade and specifically examines its application to low-rise residential buildings.
Riley M, Lawton M
What does the designer of a future energy-efficient building ask of the air flow specialist? - Static predictions of air flow patterns and optimization of thermal comfort and indoor air quality at design conditions will not be enough for him.
Moser A
Annex 14 -Condensation and Energy- started in April 1987, with a take of meeting in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The annex itself was born after a moisture-workshop in September 1985 at the Laboratory of Building Physics, KULeuven, Belgium.
Hens H
Tracer gas techniques have become widely used to measure the ventilation rates in buildings.
Sherman M
The IEA Annex 18 Demand Controlled Ventilating Systems-(DCV-Systems) with 9 participants are just in the middle of the work.
