Ventilation in the French homes: survey of the attitudes and behaviour of private citizens. | 2000 | English
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.
Lessons learned from the application of the Swedish Boverket-OVK procedure in Belgium. | 2000 | English
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.
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.
In France, the regulation on residential building ventilation is based, since 1969, on a generaland continuous air renewal ; the fresh air comes into habitable rooms by air inlets and thestale air is drawn out to exhaust vents in the service rooms
This article describes a ventilation system, developed within the framework of aEuropean project supported by the JOULE III programme (NAVAIR project).
A Ventilated roof component was built and tested in the outdoor testing facilities (Test Cells) of CRES, Greece.
In this study, we investigated the indoor air quality (IAQ) in classrooms with exhaustventilation systems and in naturally ventilated classrooms. In the latter, we found peak CO2-concentrations of more than 4000 ppm.
Integration of indoor and outdoor airflow study for natural ventilation design using CFD. | 2000 | English
Natural ventilation is one of the most fundamental techniques to reduce energy usage inbuildings.
Experimental testing of a homogeneous tracer pulse technique for measurement of ventilation and air distribution in buildings. | 2000 | English
A number of single tracer gas techniques (decay, step-up, homogeneous constant emission,inlet pulse and homogeneous pulse) suitable for measuring the local mean ages of air in multizonebuildings exist, each having their advantages and drawbacks.
A Tool Kit was developed to assess indoor air quality.
