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.
Riffat S B, Gillott M C
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
Noel O, Millet J-R, Villenave J G
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.
Huang J, Chen Q
This paper outlines work in progress to develop dissemination material to assist the appropriate application of solar and passive ventilation in urban buildings.
Kolokotroni M, Santamouris M, Dascalaki E, Palmer J, Allard F, Alvarez S,""Blanco A
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.
Weinlader H, Beck A, Fricke J
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.
Dimoudi A, Androutsopoulos A, Lykoudis S
A Tool Kit was developed to assess indoor air quality.
Richardson G, Eick S A, Harwood D J
Natural ventilation is one of the most fundamental techniques to reduce energy usage inbuildings.
Zhai Z, Hamilton S D, Huang J, Allocca C, Kobayashi N, Chen Q
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.
Stymne H, Hansson P, Boman C A
A hybrid ventilation system is a two-mode system that can automatically switch between passive and mechanical mode at different times of the day or seasons of the year.
Liu J, Yoshino H
There has been a growing interest in the use of natural ventilation in buildings to supplement orreplace mechanical air supply systems.
Sharples S, de Salis M, Oldham D
The traditional way to dehumidify the outdoor air in an A/C-system is by cooling the air downbelow the dew point temperature. For this process a refrigeration system is necessary torealise these low temperatures.
Biel S, Steimle F
A currently unresolved problem in building design is the paradox between increasing demandfor good thermal insulation, and the requirement for ample levels of ventilation, to maintain ahealthy indoor environment.
McEvoy M, Southall R G
Dwellings airtigthness is not well known in practice, in France.When dwellings are equipped with mechanical ventilation systems (which represents about 95% of the new dwellings in France) the airtigthness can strongly influence the performance ofv
Barles P, Boulanger X
The prediction of energy use, air flows and temperatures in different rooms of a building andat different climatic conditions is very important, especially when evaluating new conceptsfor heating and ventilation systems in combination with differe
Levin P
Within the EC-JOULE project "AIRLIT-PV", a new facade unit, integrating ventilation, daylighting, solar protection, intelligent local control and photovoltaic power, has been developed and is under evaluation by means of performance testing at fou
Kronvall J, et al
Knowledge and estimation of the wind speed and air flow characteristics, in a city, is of vitalimportance for passive cooling applications and especially in the design of naturallyventilated buildings.
Santamouris M, Dascalaki E, Klitsikas N, Papakonstantinou K, Georgakis C
The heating degree-days method is widely used for calculation of the air change heating energydemand.
Binamu A, Linberg R
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.
