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.
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.
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.
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.
The discharge coefficient - experimental measurement of a dependence on density contrast. | 2000 | English
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.
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.
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.
This paper presents an experimental study of natural ventilation induced by combined forces of thermal buoyancy and opposing wind in a single-zone building.
Performances of a new generation high efficiency heat recovery units for domestic ventilation. | 2000 | English
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.
Performance of demand controlled ventilation: case study, energy savings and practical rules. | 2000 | English
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
The role of simplified ventilation modeling for the application of low energy design: a library case study. | 2000 | English
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.
