In the framework of the Flemish “Kantoor 2000” research project, the BBRI invited a Swedish inspector to apply the Boverket-OVK procedure for checking the ventilation installations in three Belgian buildings.

Ventilation in the French homes: survey of the attitudes and behaviour of private citizens. | 2000 | English
ADEME (French Agency for Environment and Energy Management) regularly commissionssurveys of the attitudes and behaviour of private citizens with regard to energy, andperiodically it also commissions more detailed surveys relating to a particular a
The relationships between indoor environment and health, well being and ability to acquire knowledge are unquestionable. These are the reasons why in many countries a high level of indoor environment is required in school buildings.
A field measurement study of the airtightness of 73 - less than 5 year old - French dwellingswas led between 1999 and 2000.
Loading of ventilation components with dust may affect air handling systems performances andcontribute to poor indoor air.
Designers, professionals and practitioners are currently making evaluations and sizing ventilation systems and apparatus in Italy on the basis of the Italian standard UNI 10339.
An investigation of the performance of a recently built estate of over 50 low-energy rental dwellings indicated that there was a slight but significant increase in electricity use of the “super low energy” designs over the control “low energy” des
US Manufactured homes are required to be built to Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (MHCSS.) The National Fire Protection Association recently updated ventilation standards for manufa
Pollutant dispersion simulated with tracer gas in a naturally ventilated test house. | 2000 | English
The New Zealand Building Code has kept with tradition in allowing residential building ventilationdesigns based entirely on openable window areas.
This paper investigates passive displacement flows in a simple, two-compartment building that comprises a single storey connected to an atrium.
Simulating quality in relation to ventilation systems: challenges for an energy performance regulation. | 2000 | English
Ventilation systems should contribute to good indoor air quality conditions and should be energy efficient.
The target in this study was to decrease the energy use for transportation of air (fanenergy) with a factor of three.
In natural ventilation systems, fresh air is often provided through opening of windows, andthere is a wide range of possibilities with regard to selection of window type and position inthe facade.
Derivation of simple ventilation and thermal models for a naturally ventilated auditorium with high internal heat gains. | 2000 | English
Measurements of ventilation rates and internal temperatures have been recorded in a naturallyventilated auditorium with high intermittent heat gains for a wide range of weather conditionsat a UK site.
Ventilation performances in French dwellings: results from field observations and measurements. | 2000 | English
This paper presents a recent field measurement study undertaken in 1999 on 73 recent Frenchdwellings.
Ventilation needs in dwellings must be determined on the basis of both requirements to theindoor air quality and necessary control of moisture conditions.
The estimate of actual air change rates considering atmospheric turbulence isintroduced. The starting point is the spectral description of turbulence - Kaimalspectrum was used in order to consider the height above ground.
The move towards improving building air-tightness to save energy has increased theincidence of poor indoor air quality and associated problems, such as condensation onwindows, mould, rot and fungus on window frames.
In this study, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and a variety of mixing models is used to evaluate the indoor air quality in a small single-family house.
Sol-Vent: Development of strategies for the efficient use of solar and passive ventilation in urban buildings. | 2000 | English
This paper outlines work in progress to develop dissemination material to assist the appropriate application of solar and passive ventilation in urban buildings.
