This paper is based on field measurements in auditoria which were carried out in Norway and in Switzerland. In both cases carbon dioxide (CO2) was chosen as the relevant indicator to establish ventilation demand.
12th AIVC Conference - Ottawa, Canada - 24-27 September 1991
The 12th AIVC Conference - Air movement and ventilation control within buildings, was held in Ottawa, Canada, 24-27 September 1991.

Air is the main transport medium for contaminants in buildings. Minimizing source strengths has first priority, second is to control air flow rates, supply and exhaust, and directions between zones in buildings.
The subtask 2 of Annex XX (Optimization of Air Flow Patterns Within Buildings) involved a research project called "Air Flows Through Large Openings In Buildings".
The paper describes work on simplified design methods made in connection with the International Energy Agency programme "Air Flow Pattern within Buildings", Annex 20, subtask 1.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) task-sharing project "Air Flow Patterns within Buildings" was initiated in May 1988 for a duration of 3,5 years.
"Air Movement and Ventilation Control within Buildings", held 24-27 September 1991, Ottawa, Canada, proceedings published September 1991, Volume 1, pp 141-142.
Airflow through a building has both mean and fluctuating components due to spatial and temporal variations in wind-induced pressures.
We report on four new full scale experiments that were designed to measure the influence of wind on the ventilation and/or heat loss rates through single large openings: a) test-house with horizontal slit opening, set-up to measure internal pressu
The ability to accurately predict air movement and temperature distribution in spaces offers the potential for design engineers to evaluate and optimise room air distribution systems at an early stage, leading to improved thermal comfort and venti
