This paper presents the results of monitoring the ventilation in Netley Infants School in Hampshire.
Palmer J, Shaw P, Trollope M
The number of smokers differs mainly with age, sex, education, profession, and cultural background.
Mansson L-G, Svennberg S A
A new miniature mechanical ventilation system with both supply and extract air and an air-to-air heat exchanger has been developed in Great Britain and Denmark.
Egedorf M
Existing regulations concerning the design and construction of residential buildings which are naturally ventilated via courtyards and lightwells have origins in daylighting rather than in aerodynamics.
Walker R R, Shao L, Woolliscroft M
Designing a comfortable inside climate for office buildings to operate within comfort limits (PMV+/-0.5) requires a flexible operating strategy. Two systems a VAV and a VHV are identified and compared to each other.
Simmonds P
This paper reports results from the ventilation and air tightness measurements in Swedish dwellings as part of the 1992 Swedish Energy and Indoor Climate Survey (the ELIBstudy).
Kronvall J, Boman C-A
Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) and passive stack ventilation (PSV) systems are both proposed as methods of ensuring satisfactory ventilation rates in UK housing.
Palin S L, Winstanley R, McIntyre D A, Edwards R E
Several demonstration buildings were constructed in order to find technical solutions to energy saving and better indoor air quality in the 1980's in Fiand.
Pallari M-L, Luoma M
An even distribution of room air can improve indoor air quality, lower energy costs, and create thermally comfortable environments. This paper investigates the influence of the design of plaque diffusers on the efficiency of supply air.
Tang Y-Q, Holmberg S
The major objective of the IEA task XIII project is to design and construct low energy dwellings which should be technically and economically realistic in the period 2000-2010.
Wouters P, L'Heureux D, De Herde A, Gratia E
In the framework of a CEC demonstration project on humidity controlled ventilation, detailed measurements are carried out in 18 apartments in Namur, Belgium.The paper gives a brief description of the building, of the airtightness of the apartments
Wouters P, Geerinckx B, L'Heureux D
The continual reduction of the transmission heat losses of residential buildings causes an increasing importance of the ventilation heat losses. Energy saving can be achieved by using a mechanical ventilation system with heat recovery.
Steimle F, Mengede B
High quality is a prerequisite for industry to sell its products.
Pedersen J
Ventilation of buildings is necessary, both to insure adequate indoor air quality and to protect the building itself against condensation and mould growth. On the other hand, ventilation rates must not lead to excessive energy consumption.
Villenave J G, Millet J-R, Riberon J
The BRE method of predicting water vapour conditions in houses is based on two generalised moisture admittance parameters a and p.
Serive-Mattei L, Jones R, Kolokotroni M, Littler J
Under-estimating the ventilation flow rate results in increased sanitary risks and damage to the existing building structure. Over-estimating ventilation flow leads to energy waste.
Creuzevault D
The paper presents a criterion to assess the performance of mechanical exhaust hoods for dome stic kitchens and a procedure to experimentally test them; an analysis of the relevant parameters which affect their performance is made, the test result
Cardinale N, Tommaso R M Di, Fracastoro G V, Nino E, Perino M
The momentum balance on a centrifugal fan, supplemented by a complete energy balance for rigorous interpretation of power-pressure interactions, relates these variables to flow rate and fan speed.
Lorenzetti D
Many modern office and residential buildings in Sweden include an atrium. The atria are often mechanically ventilated and sometimes they are heated. Very little is know about the ventilation and air infiltration in built atria.
Blomsterberg A, Wall M
In urban non-residential buildings air-conditioning systems are generally required to achieve acceptable air quality. To reduce the energy demand of HVAC-plants free cooling is proposed.
Bollinger A, Roth H W
