Ventilation Planning for Mid-sized Japanese Commercial Kitchens and Calculation Method of Ventilation Rate Using Building Information Modeling | 2018 | English | 11 pp
In the design of a commercial kitchen ventilation system, it is very important to maintain the capture efficiency of exhaust hoods and ensure smooth removal of heat, moisture, and odor.
BIM-integrated Design tool for in-line recommended ventilation rates with Demand Controlled Ventilation strategy | 2018 | English | 9 pp
Use of Demand Controlled ventilation (DCV) can potentially save more than 50% of energy use for ventilation purposes compared to constant air volume (CAV) ventilation.
The European Commission’s Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) manages parts of the Horizon 2020 framework programme for research, innovation and market uptake (2014-2020), including for energy efficiency in the buildin
Estimated distributions of PM2.5 concentrations in the kitchens of the English housing stock for infiltration and mechanical ventilation scenarios | 2018 | English | 10 pp
Exposures to elevated concentrations of airborne fine particulate matter with diameter ≤ 2.5 µm (PM2.5) have been linked to multiple negative health effects.
Cooking can be a major source of exposure to particulate matter. Range hoods can be used to reduce odours, moisture and contaminants resulting from cooking.
Cooking is one of the most substantial sources of indoor air pollution in most residences. This is mitigated most often by exhaust devices located near cooking surfaces.
An intervention study of PM2.5 concentrations measured in domestic kitchens | 2018 | English | 10 pp
Exposures to elevated concentrations of fine particulate matter with diameter ≤2.5µm (PM2.5) are linked to multiple acute and chronic health effects, including increased risk of cardiovascular and respiratory disease.
The research question of this report is “Is it possible to save energy by lowering the bedroom temperatures in winter”. In this paper first the literature on optimum sleeping temperatures is investigated.
Isolation Rooms - CFD Simulations of Airborne Contamination Through Doors During Passage | 2018 | English | 10 pp
There has been an increase in diseases caused by airborne infections such as influenza A/H1N1 or SARS in the recent years. Airborne infection isolation rooms are commonly used to limit the spread of airborne infections.
Case study : comparison between a central and a decentral ventilation unit in a school building from the 80’s | 2018 | English | 5 pp
Ventilation and healthy classes are a recurring problem. Continuously increasing the air flow rate improves the living environment, but is unacceptable in terms of higher costs and energy loss, which is why a different approach is needed.
Residential balanced ventilation and its tested impacts on indoor pressure and air quality | 2018 | English | 10 pp
This paper presents results from a project on the assessment of the indoor air quality (IAQ) benefits that might accrue from the use of a balanced energy recovery ventilation system.
Influence of multizone airleakage on IAQ performance in residential buildings | 2018 | English | 10 pp
This article proposes to study the impact of envelope and internal partition walls airleakage distributions, on the indoor air quality (IAQ) performance.
The implementation of decentralised ventilation units is growing, especially in the residential retrofit.
An experimental investigation into the ventilation effectiveness of diffuse ceiling ventilation | 2018 | English | 7 pp
Diffuse ceiling ventilation is a novel air distribution concept, where the space above a suspended ceiling is used as a plenum and fresh air is supplied into the occupied zone through perforations in the suspended ceiling panels.
Experimental study on the measurement of Building Infiltration and Air Leakage rates (at 4 and 50 Pa) by means of Tracer Gas methods, Blower Door and the novel Pulse technique in a Detached UK Home | 2018 | English | 10 pp
Air infiltration contributes to a heat loss typically representing up to one third of the heating demand of a building. The building airtightness, also quantified as air leakage, is the fundamental building property that impacts infiltration.
Comparison of experimental methodologies to estimate the air infiltration rate in a residential case study for calibration purposes | 2018 | English | 9 pp
The air renovation of a building should be controlled in order to ensure a proper level of indoor air quality while minimize heat losses. It is a crucial point for the future energy efficiency goals.
In this paper a new methodology is presented to determine airtightness of buildings. The common method for airtightness testing is through fan pressurization with a blower door test. The new methodology also uses fan pressurization.
Airtightness measurement of large buildings by using multi-zonal techniques: a case study | 2018 | English | 10 pp
Nowadays the improvement of building airtightness is an essential condition to achieve high energy performance of buildings. Therefore, there is a need to precisely describe and quantify buildings infiltrations.
