The energy impact involved between bringing in outdoor air for indoor air pollution reduction and the energy required to condition this air are investigated in this report.
Colliver D.
Nowadays it is rather common with demand controlled ventilation in public buildings and offices. The purpose of demand controlled ventilation is to adapt the ventilation to the varying needs of the occupations.
Carlsson T, Blomsterberg A
A demand controlled ventilation system with humidity as the control parameter was tested in an experimental demonstration project in 16 apartments.
Nielsen J B, Ambrose I
This paper describes a method which aims to generate an overall view of multizone building air flow by integrating methods for bulk air flow analysis, air flow field analysis, and building thermal analysis.
Clarke J A, Hensen J L M, Negrao C O R
The ventilation of an attic is critical in estimating heating and cooling loads for buildings because the air temperature in the attic is highly sensitive to ventilation rate.

Almost 60% of French residential buildings were built before the seventies, and an important part of those is to be retrofitted for complying with new needs with regard to acoustic insulation and energy saving.
Riberon J, Villenave J-G, Millet J-R, Moutet S
The C-2000 program for advances commercial buildings is an awards program to assist in the development of energy efficient and sustainable building technologies and design in Canada.
Sterling E M, Coady T, Cook J, Shymko G, Newburt K, Cordonier J
Dynamic insulation has been used in non domestic buildings for 20- 30 years in order to reduce the heat loss and to bring preheated air into the buildings.
Brunsell J T
Air flow measurements and simulations were made on a 13-story apartment building to characterize the ventilation rates for the individual apartments.
Diamond R C, Feustel H E
In this paper, we investigate the potential of an aerosol-based technique to significantly reduce the leakiness of residential air distribution systems (ADS).
Carrie F R, Modera M P
The Dutch E novation program is a national demonstration program in which dwellings with high energy consumption, moisture and mould problems and poor indoor air quality were renovated, with special attention to the selection of the heating and ve
Op t Veld P J M, Slijpen H G
A laboratory, designed to form the basis for research aiming at increasing the knowledge concerning the interactions between indoor pollution sources and the indoor environment, has been taken into operation.
Ekberg L E, Nielsen J B
Disadvantages and advantages with different heating and ventilation systems in modern housing have been discussed during many years in Sweden.
Blomsterberg A, Carlsson T
With effect from January 1st, 1995 the amended Heat Transfer Barrier Act (,,Warmeschutzverordnung ) was introduced in the Federal Republic of Germany, replacing the 1982 version.
Mertz G
For the planning of "silent cooling" systems built by free convective coolers, it is necessary to support characteristic data for the cooling performance and the effect of different installation and operating parameters on the cooling performance.
Steimle F
In order that sampling points may be strategically located, it is desirable to have knowledge of the spatial variation of ventilation eflectiveness parameters prior to measuring them using tracer gas sampling techniques.
Simons M W, Waters J R, Leppard J
By means of a case study involving a severe case of coupled heat and sir flow in buildings, this paper aims to quantify the differences resulting from different methods (ping-pong and onion approach) for linking heat and air flow models.
Hensen J L M
A study was set up to compare the effectiveness of passive stack ventilators (PSV) with mechanical extract fans (MEF) in providing adequate ventilation in UK homes.
Oseland N
A breakthrough in ventilation research was made once it was realized that ventilation principles based on mixed flow patterns are not optimal and that further energy savings can be achieved if an alternative technique could be developed.
