7th AIVC Conference: Occupant Interaction with ventilation systems (Book of Proceedings) | 1986 | English
Within the framework of the International Energy flgency (IEA) Annex VIII , "Inhabitants Behaviour with Regard to Ventilation" an investigation has been carried out on the use of windows in an apartment building in Schiedam.
Influence of night-time ventilation reduction on indoor air quality in Danish blocks of flats. | 1986 | English
The paper describes the main results from a research project performed by "The Mobile Laboratory of Indoor Climate Measurements" one of the five mobile laboratories of the Institute.
During winter periods in four types of newly built terraced dwellings and in apartments of a flatbuilding,the daily behaviour and motivations of the inhabitants with respect to airing and ventilation have been studied.
A detailed statistical analysis of window use and its effect on the ventilation rate in 2400 Belgian social houses. | 1986 | English
A large inquiry campaign began in 1985 on 100 social housing estates and 2,334 families were visited. The housing estates were selected according to their age, location, type of building (dwelling/apartment) and heating system.
Keynote address of the 7th AIVC Conference.
This paper discusses the use of trickle ventilators in the design for natural ventilation in dwellings.
The role of the occupant in buildings energy use has been evident in studies in many countries.
Centrally controlled mechanical exhaust air ventilation systems in residential buildings can satisfactorily serve only a few of the inhabitants.
A group of 18 identical well-insulated experimental houses in Sweden, utilizing a user controlled exhaust fan ventilation system, was monitored during 1985- 1986.
The use of passive ventilation systems for condensation control in dwellings and their effect upon energy consumption. | 1986 | English
The need for reduced energy consumption has led to an overall decrease of air infiltration rates in buildings. particularly in dwellings. Unfortunately. this has given rise to a significant number of problems involving condensation.
In France, most of the ventilation systems in dwellings now consist of exhaust vents linked up with a fan, and air inlets.
In order to save energy, i.e. ventilation heat losses, the fresh air change rate should be adapted to the prevailing need.
A balanced ventilation system with heat recovery was designed and installed into an 11 storey prefabricated block building. Monitoring of the system operation was accomplished during a year.
The effects on ventilation behaviour of inhabitants in residential buildings have been investigated as a part within several years' German R and Dprogramme.
A sociological perspective on tenant behaviour with regard to domestic ventilation - an example at Lausanne, Switzerland. | 1986 | English
This research attempts to offer partial answers as to how and why inhabitants of a rented apartment building behave as they do in aeration.
An energy efficiency monitoring programme was carried out from 1984 to 1986 by the South London Consortium Energy Group, United Kingdom Department of Energy, with assistance from British Gas, Watson House, as part of a demonstration project funded
Design of occupancy related ventilation control system for a new entertainment centre in Hong Kong. | 1986 | English
A design process is developed for an OCCUPANCY RELATED VENTILATION CONTROL SYSTEM (ORVCS) in a new entertainment centre in Sha-tin, Hong Kong. The aim is to reduce the cost of space cooling.
SINTEF, The Foundation for Scienti f ic and Industrial Research at the Norwegian Institute of Technology, has monitored a number of experimental low-energy houses, and also undertaken measurements in some other houses to establish the energy consu
Requirements for adequate and user-acceptable ventilation installations in dwellings. | 1986 | English
After years of intensive studies on indoor air pollution sources, pollution levels, condensation effects, building airtightness, and air change rates, we are now at the point to discover that no solution whatsoever to the ventilation problem is po
