Demand controlled ventilation: relevance of humidity based detection systems for the control of ventilation in the spaces occupied by persons | 2018 | English | 11 pp
Traditionally, occupancy-based ventilation controls have only ventilated when occupants are present – usually based on measurements of CO2 and/or humidity.
In order to better address energy and indoor air quality issues, ventilation needs to become smarter.
Olfactory adaptation model based on change of odor threshold using impulse response function | 2018 | English | 8 pp
It is well known that the olfactory sensitivity changes with exposure time and concentration of odor under continuous exposure to odor in the air.
Since the turn of the century, alarming data produced by the Indoor Air Quality Observatory (OQAI) have led to changes in French legislation, including, most notably, the introduction of compulsory labelling for construction products (decree no.
Accuracy Improvement for Estimating Indoor Carbon Dioxide Concentration Produced by Occupants | 2018 | English | 9 pp
Carbon dioxide included in exhaled breath is often used as a tracer gas when estimation of ventilation aspect in buildings with occupants is performed. Indoor carbon dioxide concentration is also adopted evaluation of ventilation commonly.
Thamesmead Condensation, Damp and Mould Strategy. The use of smart thermostats to assess ventilation interventions with demand controlled ventilation | 2018 | English | 8 pp
An implementation of a Condensation, Damp and Mould (CD&M) Strategy for the Thamesmead estate in south-east London Targeting 2000 homes.
A Stochastic Approach to Estimate Uncertainty in Pollutant Concentrations in an Archetypal Chilean House | 2018 | English | 11 pp
As policy makers strive to reduce the energy demands of houses by reducing infiltration rates, an unintended consequence could be a fall in the quality of indoor air with corresponding negative health effects at a population scale.
The assessment of surface condensation risk in dwellings. The influence of climate in Spain | 2018 | English | 11 pp
Surface condensation risk is a fact that has to be dealt with when buildings are airtight. Airtight buildings with lower ventilation rates are the result of applying energy saving policies and criteria.
Characteristics of ultrafine particle emission change depending on the placement of ventilation systems in 3D printer working environment | 2018 | English | 8 pp
This study evaluated the emission characteristics of ultrafine particles emitted during material extrusion type 3D printer, called Desktop 3D printer, operation in the test bed and mock-up environmental conditions respectively.
The Assessment of Particulate Matter (PM2.5) Removal Efficiency on Air Cleaner Products through Full Scale Test in Korea | 2018 | English | 8 pp
This study is designed to investigate the particulate matter removal efficiency of domestic air cleaner products and seeks to compare the particulate matter removal efficiency in a laboratory with that in real life.
The impact on indoor air of bio-based insulation materials: effect of humidity and potential mould growth | 2018 | English | 7 pp
Bio-based insulation materials represent an alternative to petro-based materials which may contribute to enhance buildings energy efficiency.
Ventilation improvement for make-up air supply system cooking-generated indoor particles | 2018 | English | 5 pp
Cooking activities generate massive fine particulate matter (number concentration). Effective ventilation system can improve the indoor air quality impacts of pollutants from residential cooking.
Indoor particle concentration related to occupant behavior of Korean residential buildings | 2018 | English | 6 pp
In recent years, PM, which is one of the most important indoor air pollutants, has attracted a great deal of attention. PM is mainly generated by occupant activities.
CFD analysis of the optimal installation location of adsorption material in two ventilation conditions in residential buildings: natural convection and mechanical ventilation | 2018 | English | 8 pp
Recently, many studies have focused on the adsorption of pollutants as a method for improving indoor air quality.
The research objectives of this study are to develop and validate a detailed simulation model of a test cell which was used to measure heat balances for comfort evaluation.
Optimal control strategy of air-conditioning systems of buildings requiring strict humidity control | 2018 | English | 7 pp
This paper presents a model-based optimal control strategy for multi-zone air-conditioning systems with strict humidity control.
Cooling and Heating performance of Ceiling Radiant Textile Air Conditioning System with PAC | 2018 | English | 11 pp
There are two types of air conditioning systems, convective and radiant air conditioning system.
Development of Psychrometric diagram for the energy efficiency of Air Handling Units | 2018 | English | 10 pp
Air Handling Unit (AHU), as a system for space heating and cooling is one of the most relevant causes of energy consumption in both residential and tertiary sector buildings.
In this paper a new ventilated window with a PCM heat exchanger is proposed. In winter, the heat exchanger works as a solar collector to store heat for pre-heating of the ventilated air.
