Twenty one papers presented at the fifth AIVC Conference as follows: Review of building airtightness and ventilation standards; IEA Annex IX Minimum ventilation rates - Survey and outlook; A standard for minimum ventilation; Airtightness standards
This survey describes how external walls and joints are constructed in practice.
Mansson L-G.
This paper discusses the situation in the Netherlands with respect to air tightness of dwellings and reflects discussions about this in the Dutch Standard Committee on Air Tightness of Buildings.
De Gids W F.
A reduction of infiltration and ventilation rates by a mere 1% would reduce annual US energy costs by about 300 million dollars.
Millhone J P.
ASHRAE is preparing a standard which addresses the maximum air leakage associated with good construction.
Sherman M.
The air tightness of 15 detached houses was measured firstly immediately after erection and secondly after a period of 1.5 to 4.5 years. All the houses were timber framed ones, equipped with mechanical ventilation systems.
Carlsson A, Kronvall J.
In Finland there are not yet any regulations or standards concerning the airtightness of buildings.
Railio J.
In 1981 Norwegian building regulations introduced quantitative requirements to air leakages in different types of buildings.
Uvslokk S, Vik B.
Increased attention to the reduction of energy consumption in buildings and greater awareness of the need to maintain acceptable standards of indoor air quality have led to the development of new or revised standards of building airtightness and v
Jackman P J.
The air infiltration associated with ventilation in buildings is recognized in ASHRAE Standard 62-1981, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality.
Harrje D T, Janssen J E.
A microprocessor system is being developed for occupancy related ventilation control of mechanical ventilation in Brunel University Library.
Smith B E, Prowse R W, Owen C J.
The relation between air infiltration rate and indoor concentrations of radon gas, radon daughters, and formaldehyde has been investigated for both summer and winter conditions in a number of Toronto houses with low rates of natural ventilation.
Manley P J, Helmeste R H, Tamura G T.
Ventilation standards in buildings are receiving increased attention because of energy conservation and indoor air quality.
Nero A V, Grimsrud D T.
Reduction of fresh air ventilation is becoming the major means of energy conservation in office buildings.
Sterling E M, Sterling T D.
The Swiss performance standard for energy conservation in buildings SIA 380/1 is explained. This standard leaves air infiltration and other detail decisions to planners if minimum performance levels are met.
Brunner C U.
Since 1970 measurements of air change rate have been carried out in about one thousand buildings by the Swedish Institute for Building Research (SIB). In this paper we present results from these measurements.
Boman C A, Lyberg M D.
Air change rates were measured in one two-storey detached house with five basic types of passive ventilation systems: an intake vent in the basement wall, an outdoor air supply ducted to the existing forced air heating system, an exhaust stack ext
Shaw C Y, Kim A.
The situation in Canada with regard to building regulations affecting the airtightness of buildings is reviewed with emphasis on a new standard test method for measuring airtightness which departs somewhat from methods used inother countries.
Haysom J.
Air infiltration typically accounts for a third of the energy loss in a heated building. The driving forces for natural air infiltration are wind and temperature differences.
