13th AIVC Conference "Ventilation for Energy Efficiency and Optimum Indoor Air Quality" (Book of Proceedings) | 1992 | English | 560 pp
This study assessed the effectiveness of permanent but controllable background ventilators in naturally ventilated, office-type buildings with different envelope tightness.
Energy consumption and comfort of modern air conditioning systems for office buildings. | 1992 | English
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.
This paper presents the building and HVAC parameters and discusses checklists developed for obtaining these parameters in the field.
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.
Optimisation of the thermal and ventilation performance of naturally ventilated building facades. | 1992 | English
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.
Practical guidelines for using tracer gases for the evaluation of ventilation systems. | 1992 | English
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.
An analytical study of branched connections: its implications to multizone air flow measurements. | 1992 | English
A branched connection is a single air flow passage connecting more than two zones.
OPTIBAT: a real scale cell in simulated climatic environment for multizone air flow patterns in buildings. | 1992 | English
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.
An investigation of the potential use of thermography for building air leakage measurements. | 1992 | English
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
Modeling and predicting of pollutant transfer in multizone buildings coupled with ventilation networks. | 1992 | English
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.
A new method for determination of velocity pressure loss-factors for HVAC system components | 1992 | English
This investigation is concerned with the determination of velocity pressure loss-factors for HVAC system components using tracer-gas techniques.
Building air flow is directly related to the building energy consumption and indoor air quality.
A laboratory for the study of residential attic performance under natural conditions has been constructed.
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.
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.
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.
In well insulated buildings the ventilation heat is sometimes higher than the heat losses by transmission. For a air change rate of 0,8 per hour the specific heat flux must be calculated with 25 w/m², so heat recovery can save some energy.
The study deals with the theoretical and experimental simulation of gas leaks in buildings.
