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.
Meunier B, Van Houtte O.
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.
Perera M D A E S, Warren P R
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.
Fisk W J, Binenboym J, Kaboli H, et al.
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
Walker R R
This paper reports the findings from tests undertaken in an untight, two-storey, brick-built detached test house.
Gale R, Sandberg M
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.
De Gids W F
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.
Persily A K, Grot R A
A survey is given of the sitution in The Netherlands with regard to ventilation and infiltration.
Knoll W H
This paper describes a series of ventilation measurements carried out in two small factory units situated on an industrial estate in Newport, South Wales.
Etheridge D W, Jones P J, O'Sullivan P E
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.
Lilly J P, Gale R
Ventilation can be advantageous as opposed to adventitious and, with careful building design, can eliminate the need for air conditioning in summer.
Holmes M J
The air infiltration component of house ventilation is calculated and discussed in relation to winter space heat losses and rneasures necessary to control moisture.
Bassett M
Several physical phenomena which may contribute to moisture migration from the crawl space to the living spaces in houses are outlined. Results of two projects to monitor moisture migration are presented.
Oldengarm J
A Compact Equipment for Survey of Air Renewal (CESAR) was developed at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
Scartezzini J-L, Roulet C-A, Jolliet O
Several infiltration models treat the complexity of air flows in multizone buildings, but most of them are written as research tools and are not generally available or user-friendly.
Feustel H E
For more than two years a series of detailed air infiltration measurements have been conducted over the complete yearly weather cycle on two identical side-by-side test houses in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA.
Harrje D T, Bohac D L, Nagda N L
The R-2000 Super Energy-Efficient Home Program is a cooperative industry/government initiative sponsored by Energy, Mines and Resources Canada (EMR) and delivered by the Canadian Home Builders Association.
Riley M
Natural ventilation rates in bedrooms at night have been measured in retrofitted apartments. The measurements indicate clearly that air quality in bedrooms may be unacceptable in dwellings with an energy-efficient minimal ventilation rate.
