The Presentations at the 35th AIVC Conference "Ventilation and airtightness in transforming the building stock to high performance", held in Poznań, Poland, 24-25 September 2014.
This session will discuss the major changes of the ventilation standards supporting the implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive recast.
Jaap Hogeling, Gerhard Zweifel
Numerous tests are being performed throughout Europe.

For over a decade now, the OQAI — Observatoire de la qualité de l’air intérieur [French observatory for indoor air quality] — has been leading research into indoor air quality and occupant comfort in living spaces: housing, schools, offices, leisu

We have analysed the steady wind model error based on a simplified building model with one leak on the windward side and one on the leeward side of the building.
François Rémi Carrié, Valérie Leprince
The characterization of power-law coefficients of the airflow through ventilation system components and ductwork or building leaks should include corrections on the airflow rate measurement because of two phenomena: a) the temperature and pressure

Adequate ventilation is necessary to maintain thermal comfort and remove indoor air pollutant concentrations (Crump et al., 2005).
James McGrath, Miriam Byrne
The term of “Active House” recently developed, addressing houses that target a balanced optimization of indoor environmental quality, energy performance and environmental performance.
Peter Holzer, Peter Foldbjerg
The article presents the results of our research, which was realized under a cooperation project between the University of Pécs, Hungary and the University of Osijek, Croatia.
László Fülöp, György Polics
A project at the Energie- und Umweltzentrum (e.u.[z].) Springe looked into strategies how insulation and sealing components can be installed in existing constructions to improve the best airtightness.
Wilfried Walther
This study investigates the influence of outlet location on conventional, turbulent-mixing operating-room (OR) ventilation performance. This was done by numerical simulation using computational fluid dynamics.
Sasan Sadrizadeh, Sture Holmberg
The paper investigates the possibility for using a traditional ventilation system with ceiling mounted diffusers to provide heating under winter time conditions in relatively cold climates – in buildings with low transmition losses such as “passiv
Bård Venås, Trond Thorgeir Harsem, Bent A. Børresen
Detached residential wooden houses are a common type of housing in Japan. Decay of wooden components within the walls is easily caused by condensation or defective flushing.
Kan Lin, Shinsuke Kato
To ensure adequate indoor air quality, ventilation is necessary in new constructions as well as in modernized existing buildings. In order to minimize energy losses, ventilation systems with integrated heat recovery should be used.
Janez Zgaga, David Lanthaler, Christoph Speer, Rainer Pfluger
This research investigates the significance of the moisture buffering and latent heat capacities in exposed cross-laminated timber (CLT) walls with the respect to indoor climate and energy consumption.
Ivana Katavic, Kristine Nore, Tormod Aurlien
Building integrated renewable energy sources e.g. photovoltaic system is one of the promised solution for improving energy efficiency in building.
Ewelina Kubacka, Dariusz Heim
The paper presents optimization model of the chilled water based data center cooling system.
Piotr Kowalski, Mieczysław Porowski
Airtightness of buildings is necessary to obtain healthy, sustainable and energy efficient buildings. Measuring the airtightness of a building has become more common lately, much due to the higher energy use in leaky buildings.
Paula Wahlgren
Numerous studies have investigated the application of multi-zone demand-controlled ventilation for office buildings.
