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.
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.
Field measurement of the airtightness and delivery effectiveness of HVAC duct systems. | 2002 | English
This paper presents the results of a field study on five HVAC duct systems in France.
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.
Studies on buildings have shown that airtightness and insulation increased in family buildings and detached houses too, due to new thermal regulations.
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
A distant learning training module on energy efficient integrated building design in urban environment | 2002 | English
The present paper aims to present a distant learning educational module that concerns the energy efficient integrated building design in the urban environment.
The natural ventilation potential (NVP) is the possibility, or probability, to ensure anacceptable indoor air quality by natural ventilation only.
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.
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.
Pressure Drop in and Noise Radiation from Rectangular and Round Ducts - Literature Survey - | 2002 | English
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.
Performance study on hybrid ventilation system with air supply from crawl space using a test house | 2002 | English
Ventilation is one of the most important measures to dilute indoor air pollutants.
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.
The effect street dimensions and traffic density on the noise level at different heights in urban canyons. | 2002 | English
Noise measurements were made at 10 locations in ‘canyon’ streets in Athens with aspect ratio (height/width) varying from 3:1 to 1:1.
Market assessment of passive downdraught evaporative cooling in non-domestic buildings in southern europe. | 2002 | English
This paper describes current work to undertake a market assessment of the potential for the application of Passive Downdraft Evaporative Cooling (PDEC) to new and existing buildings in Southern Europe.
The indoor environmental quality of a building is intended as the thermal, visual, acoustic and indoor air quality performances as a whole, which provide health and comfort for occupants.
A condensing device allows to avoid condensation on cooling ceilings in rooms with humid air. It uses thermoelectric modules in contact with the cooling panels.
