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.
Joppolo C, Giorgiantoni G
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

The New Zealand Building Code has kept with tradition in allowing residential building ventilationdesigns based entirely on openable window areas.
Bassett M R
This paper investigates passive displacement flows in a simple, two-compartment building that comprises a single storey connected to an atrium.
Holford J M, Hunt G R
Ventilation systems should contribute to good indoor air quality conditions and should be energy efficient.
Wouters P, Vandaele L
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.
Porrez J, Wouters P
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.
Sowa J
A field measurement study of the airtightness of 73 - less than 5 year old - French dwellingswas led between 1999 and 2000.
Litvak A, Guillot K, Kilberger M, Boze D
Loading of ventilation components with dust may affect air handling systems performances andcontribute to poor indoor air.

At sufficiently high Reynolds numbers, the discharge coefficient Cd associated with a sharplycontracting flow through a square-edged opening is, in general, taken to be constant.
Hunt G R, Holford J M
In the recent past new concepts for the building envelope have been developed with theunderlying wish to improve the energy performance of a building as well as comfortconditions in the inner spaces.
van Paassen A H C, Stec W
Dynamic computer simulations were used to compare residential ventilation methods to identifyan approach that would improve indoor air quality with minimum energy penalty while maintainingcomfort.
Shah D J
In this study a series of parametric laboratory measurements were made of the velocitiesoutside, ve, and inside, vi, a full-scale louver positioned in a rectangular opening located in avertical wall forming part of a 1m x 1m x 2m deep model room.
Sharples S, Maghrabi A
This paper presents an experimental study of natural ventilation induced by combined forces of thermal buoyancy and opposing wind in a single-zone building.
Andersen A, Bjerre M, Chen Z D, Heiselberg P, Li Y
At present the design pressure difference for air inlets in The Netherlands is 1 Pascal. This paperinvestigates the question whether or not this value is still appropriate.In recent years the airtightness of dwellings has improved remarkably.
Vollebregt R, Vrins E
This paper discusses how simplified thermal and ventilation tools could be used during thefeasibility study of buildings to demonstrate the advantages of natural and low energyventilation strategies.
Rufus S C, Kolokotroni M
In 1998 the Dutch ventilation industry launched a new generation of domestic ventilation systems on the market with high efficiency heat recovery applying counter flow heat exchangers and DC fans.
Op't Veld P
In order to assess the real performances of different demand controlled ventilation (DCV)systems, two of them were installed in meeting rooms of an office building.The first system is controlled by movement detection on terminal units and has been
