6th AIC Conference: Ventilation strategies and measurement techniques (Book of Proceedings) | 1985 | English
Interpretation and error analysis of multi-tracer gas measurements to determine air movement in a house. | 1985 | English
Although infiltration of outside air across the envelope of a building has been considered of prime interest in relation to energy conservation and indoor air quality, it also important to understand the way in which air moves between zones within
This paper reports the findings from tests undertaken in an untight, two-storey, brick-built detached test house.
Inhabitants' behaviour with regard to ventilation. A report of the work of the Annex VIII. | 1985 | English
If the energy losses due to ventilation have obviously become an important problem since the energy crisis, there is still a lot to be done with respect to the behaviours.
Influence of open windows on the interzone air movement within a semi-detached dwelling. | 1985 | English
A multicell air flow computer program is used to determine the influence of 1) open windows and 2) closed internal doors on the ventilation rate of a semi-detached house.
A multi-tracer system for measuring ventilation rates and ventilation efficiencies in large mechanically-ventilated buildings. | 1985 | English
Measurement of air exchange rates, ages of air, and nominal and local ventilation efficiencies in large buildings is often complicated by the building size and compartmentalization, and by the presence of multiple ventilation systems.
Basic material for the instruction of occupants of homes. How, when and where to use your windows. | 1985 | English
Airtightness measurements were carried out in ten typical Dutch dwelling complexes. In each complex four homes were measured. The IMG calculation model was used to calculate expected ventilation for these dwellings.
Based on current concerns regarding indoor air quality and energy use, there is a need for in situ techniques for evaluating buildings' infiltration and ventilation characteristics. The U.S.
A survey is given of the sitution in The Netherlands with regard to ventilation and infiltration.
This paper describes a series of ventilation measurements carried out in two small factory units situated on an industrial estate in Newport, South Wales.
Inhabitants behaviour with regard to ventilation: the use of windows. First heating season. | 1985 | English
As part of a programme to develop measurement methods for determining the ventilation rates of large buildings, we performed two series of tests in a single-celled laboratory with a volume of 600m3.
This paper discusses the indoor formaldehyde levels in two groups of houses.
The effects of operating unvented appl i ances and opening windows on indoor pollutant levels and air exchange rates are being studied under the sponsorship of the Gas Research Institute.
The various meanings of ventilation efficiency are briefly summarised.
Exploration of ventilation strategies in domestic housing. Theory and experimental results. | 1985 | English
The performance of whole-house mechanical ventilation systems was explored in an full-scale indoor test house (volume 176 m³ ) .
A passive ventilation system has been installed in four new houses: it comprises simple ducts which lead up from the kitchen and bathroom to outside near the house ridge and utilise the wind and the temperature difference between inside and outsid
Use of a single tracer gas for measurement of ventilation rates in a large enclosure. | 1985 | English
This paper describes a preliminary investigation of the validity of a means of calculating the ventilation rate of a large enclosure from experimental data. It was assumed that the air in the enclosure is not perfectly mixed.
Ventilation can be advantageous as opposed to adventitious and, with careful building design, can eliminate the need for air conditioning in summer.
The air infiltration component of house ventilation is calculated and discussed in relation to winter space heat losses and rneasures necessary to control moisture.
