The book of proceedings from the 13th AIVC Conference "Ventilation for Energy Efficiency and Optimum Indoor Air Quality", Nice, France, 14-18 September 1992.
This study assessed the effectiveness of permanent but controllable background ventilators in naturally ventilated, office-type buildings with different envelope tightness.
Perera M D A E S, Marshall S G, Solomon C W
Selection of an air-conditioning system is generally determined by the sensible heat load of the building, as the total of external and internal loads. 3 systems with a mean specific sensible heat load of 60 w/m² floor area are compared.
Händel C, Lederer S, Roth H W
This paper presents the building and HVAC parameters and discusses checklists developed for obtaining these parameters in the field.
Persily A K
The first version of this "Atlas" contains over 100 cases of office air flow patterns for different ventilation systems. The book is designed to give the design engineer a quick idea of how a particular system works under various loads.
Moser A, Chen Q, Schaelin A, Yuan X
The paper, which is based around a proposed design for a building in Germany, discusses how the facade can be used to provide the driving force for building ventilation, design constraints and the application of a zonal airflow model driven by con

The Nucleus Hospital programme has been progressed by the Department of Health for over a decade.
Edwards R E, Irwin C
Over the years there has been significant advance in the development of experimental methods and analysis for the use of tracer gases in the evaluation of ventilation systems.
Grot R A
The external facade of a nine storey office building has been reclad with a ventilated cavity structure with a length to height ratio greater than forty.
Kula H-G R, Ward I C
A small test room has been built which is five times smaller than the so called Annex-20-room. Different kinds of tracers have been used for visualizing of flow patterns.
Hanel B, Richter E, Vogel P
A branched connection is a single air flow passage connecting more than two zones.
Shao L, Sharples S, Ward I C, Kula H-G R
One of the main problems about air flows pattern studies remains the experimental validation of numerical codes developped for interzone air flow and polluant diffusion prediction.
Amara F, Depecker P, Allard F
The heat loss associated with the external fabric of a building has been greatly reduced by the increased levels of modem insulation, but heating losses associated with cold external air flowing into a building via leakage points in the external f
Roberts J W, Sharples S, Ward I C
A literature review shows that the actual trends to prediction of air flow in multizone buildings are not only due to economical reasons but mainly to indoor air quality, acoustical and thermal comfort improvements.
Megri A C, Allard F, Krauss G
This investigation is concerned with the determination of velocity pressure loss-factors for HVAC system components using tracer-gas techniques.
Cheong K W, Riffat S B
Building air flow is directly related to the building energy consumption and indoor air quality.
Shao L, Kula H-G R, Sharples S, Ward I C
A laboratory for the study of residential attic performance under natural conditions has been constructed.
Rose W B
Spillage of combust ion products from open f lued combust ion appliances represents a source of indoor air pollutants which can cause danger to health.
Shepherd T
Besides the hygienic aspect, also the aspect of energy saving of heating residential buildings is very important. This is only possible by mechanical ventilation with heat recovery.
Steimle F, Roeben J
Airtightness deficiencies of building envelopes and weaknesses in the ventilation systems can disrupt the operation of heating and ventilation systems. This can lead to an insufficient level of air quality and higher energy consumptions.
