It is recommended to keep the ventilation filters dry. However there are manyventilating systems that cannot fulfil this requirement all the time.

Numerical determination of the effective depth for single-sided natural ventilation. | 1999 | English
This paper describes a numerical method for the determination of the effective depth of fresh air distribution in rooms with single-sided natural ventilation. The numerical method involves predicting air flow and the local mean age of air.
Effects of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation of room air on airborne bacteria and mycobacteria. | 1999 | English
As a result of the recent resurgence in tuberculosis (TB), there has been renewed interest inengineering controls to reduce the spread of TB and other airborne infectious diseases in highrisk settings.
Classrooms in New Zealand schools are mostly low rise buildings with natural ventilationdesigns, sized for summer cooling.
Indoor air quality in museums and historical buildings in St Petersburg and in north-west region of Russia. | 1999 | English
This presentation deals with the problem of achieving stable microclimate in old buildings ofSt Petersburg - such as churches, museums and palaces.
Indoor air quality is decreasing year by year. It is very necessary to find a kind of efficient cleaner to improve the indoor air quality. Two kinds of cleaners were tested. Both of them were made in China. Four simulated chambers were used.
Reduction of microorganisms by HVAC system filters and analysis of the microorganisms passing through the filters. | 1999 | English
k order to determine the amount of micro-organism present before and after the filters ofHVAC systems, 6 systems in 5 buildings were monitored every 2 weeks for one year.
Monitoring indoor relative humidity fluctuations associated with intermittent operation of air conditioners. | 1999 | English
In residential buildings, air-conditioners are usually operated in intermittent mode. Thisintermittent mode may complicate many aspects of indoor environments.
Evaluation of electrostatic precipitator performance for submicron particle size range. | 1999 | English
The fractional collection efficiency (FCE) tests of a commercially available two-stageelectrostatic precipitator (ESP) have been performed for six flow rates.
A test room was used to evaluate the impact of airflow parameters on the effectiveness of an air cleaning system. The room’s dimensions were nominally 11.2 m x 5.7 m x 2.7 m.
Measurement of ventilation, air distribution and inter-zonal air flows in a 4-storey historic building using a passive tracer gas technique. | 1999 | English
Air temperature, air humidity and ventilation has been measured in a Swedish baroque castle. Results are presented for a measurement campaign comprising four periods under varying climatic conditions.
With a diameter of 320m, and a height of 50m the Millennium Dome is one of the World's largest enclosed spaces, probably the largest among those intended for public use.
This study is part of an investigation of the decontamination capabilities of indoor plants.Three internationally used species, Howea forsteriana Becc. (Kentia Palm), Dracaenaderemensis Eng.
Emissions from dust collected in air filters have been investigated using in situ and chambermeasurements.
The influence of an architectural design alternative (transoms) on indoor air environment in conventional kitchens in Taiwan. | 1999 | English
This study investigates indoor air environment via the flow fields, temperature fields and air contaminants (carbon monoxide) distributions in conventional residential kitchens, and looks for effective methods to solve those problems through natur
Individual air distribution control panel on partition panel at personal task area. | 1999 | English
A general trend in intelligent buildings is the decentralization of environmental controlsystems. Decentralized environmental control systems have many advantages over centralizedsystems.
Within an International Energy Agency (IEA) project (Annex 27) experts from 8 countries(Canada, France, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Sweden, UK, and USA) have developed toolsfor evaluating domestic ventilation systems during the heating season.
Prediction of the indoor air quality trend in a dwelling in the Mediterranean climate. | 1999 | English
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the indoor air quality parameters in a residentialdwelling using information from the field.
Evaluation of the effects of ventilation systems on temperature, humidity, air quality and energy consumption in multiple dwellings. | 1999 | English
Recently well-insulated and well-airtightened houses are increasing in Japan. Those houses havesome problems of air quality because of formaldehyde from construction materials. Ventilationsystems have possibility to solve these problems.
A study on the characteristics of indoor environment and comfort in office building with underfloor air-conditioning (UFAC) system. | 1999 | English
During the last decade, an increasing interest in Underfloor Air-Conditioning (UFAC) systems has emerged. This is due mainly to an increased demand from employees for a greater control over their working environment.
