In conventional construction, the ventilation air enters a building through a combination of ‘desired’ pathways, via opened apertures, such as a window, vents, and ‘undesired’ pathways, via cracks such as around external openings, joints between b

In moderate climates, one promising feature to reduce the energy demand of office buildings for air conditioning without reducing comfort is passive cooling by night ventilation.
Herkel S., Pfafferott J., Wambsganß M.
This paper presents the results of a series of specially designed experiments to study moisture transport across bonded or natural contact interfaces between building materials.
Qiu X., Haghighat F., Kumaran K.
About 100 office buildings in the Flanders and Brussels regions have been subject to a surveyof energy aspects and indoor climate parameters.
Vandaele L., Porrez J., Wouters P., Cobbaert B., De Groote W, Bossaer A.
The combination of an open wet cooling tower with chilled ceilings is a CFC free, cheap and low energy cooling solution. The efficiency of this alternative to mechanical cooling is very dependent on climate.
Bolher A., Fleury E., Millet J.R., Marchio D., Stabat P.
This study investigates the behavior of vapor in a ventilated room in which vapor is being produced.

Double skin façades may help combine a high degree of transparency with high thermal and solar performance. Advanced façades serve as filters and may be responsive to changes in environmental conditions and occupant requirements.
Kragh M., Colombari M., Zobec M.
Nowadays the awareness concerning the environmental pollution and the demand of transparent facades in architecture, lead research in finding new solutions to increase the energy performances of the building and the installations as well.
F. Di Maio and A.H.C. van Paassen
The mitigation to reduce indoor pollutant concentration are increasing ventilation rate or to reduce the emission of the pollutant which is also common in VOCs.
A field survey on thermal comfort in Algeria has never been previously attempted, and for this reason the present study was conducted. The present paper will present a field study of thermal comfort in Algeria.
Belayat E.K., Nicol J.F., Wilson M.
This paper presents the results of a field study on five HVAC duct systems in France.
Carrié F.R., Barhoun H.
This theoretical paper studies of the interaction between air curtains system and purging dilution systems in a real urban underground railway station in order to find the best design to reduce concentration of polluting gas toward adjoining envir

Studies on buildings have shown that airtightness and insulation increased in family buildings and detached houses too, due to new thermal regulations.
Boulanger X.
It is well understood that there are many sick professional buildings in use all over the world. Most of them are sited in or near the center of large cities where the ambient atmospheric conditions are not good.
Asimakopoulos D.N., Helmis C.G.
A research project is designed to evaluate different aspects affecting human comfort in an architectural space. One of the basic parts of the research project is the evaluation of the auditory, visual and thermal comfort.
GedikG.Z., Ünver R., Karabiber Z.
In this paper, a literature survey on rectangular and round ventilation ducts is presented. The comparison is based on two important aspects: pressure drop and noise radiation.
Hassan O.A.B., Yue Z.
The natural ventilation potential (NVP) is the possibility, or probability, to ensure anacceptable indoor air quality by natural ventilation only.
Germano M., Roulet C.A., Allard F., Ghiaus C.
This study included the IAQ survey concentrated on particle levels in the library store (area of 1000 m 2 and having books or journals over 100 000 pieces in total) at the basement.
