The aim of improving air tightness of structures is to prevent the uncontrolled air leakages through structures. Built environments contain microbes, particulate and gaseous impurities but removing them is not always necessary.
35th AIVC - 4th TightVent - 2nd venticool Conference - Poznań, Poland - 24-25 September 2014
The 35th AIVC Conference " Ventilation and airtightness in transforming the building stock to high performance", was held in Poznań, Poland, 24-25 September 2014. Contains 86 papers.
Improving the airtightness of housing is an issue that concerns the Chilean state. Building ordinances do not currently include any requirement to limit infiltration and its associated energy loads.
Impact of a photocatalytic oxidation layer covering the interior surfaces of a real test room: volatile organic compound mineralisation, risk assessment of by-product and nanoparticle emissions. | 2014 | English
Many studies about photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) have been carried out in laboratories.
This study presents a comparison of air leakage measurements collected recently (November 2013 to March 2014) with two sets of prior data collected between 2001-2003 from 17 new homes located near Atlanta, GA, and 17 homes near Boise, ID that were
Proposed change in Spanish regulations relating to indoor air quality with the aim of reducing energy consumption of ventilation systems | 2014 | English
The ventilation required in order to maintain acceptable indoor hygiene standards results in a significant consumption of energy.
Derivation of equation for personal carbon dioxide in exhaled breath intended to estimation of building ventilation | 2014 | English
Carbon dioxide included in exhaled breath is often used as a tracer gas when estimation of ventilation aspect in buildings with occupants is performed. Carbon dioxide produced by occupants is the key for the estimation.
Experimental characterisation of dominant driving forces and fluctuating ventilation rates for a single sided slot louver ventilation system | 2014 | English
Adopting natural ventilation as a retrofit strategy for cooling, due to the low impact nature of the installation, is attractive due to the cooling potential of untreated outdoor air for large periods of the extended cooling season, particularly i
