Contains 27 papers.
7th AIVC Conference: Occupant Interaction with ventilation systems (Book of Proceedings) | 1986 | English
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.
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.
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
Each occupant in a room should be able to control his own indoor environment. Individual control can be achieved in many ways: from simple window-opening to automatically arranged personal mini-environment.
The buildings built according to the latest construction technology aiming at energy saving are as tight as possible. The ventilation of a tight building has to be completely mechanical (supply and exhaust a i r system).
Occupants can significantly influence both the heating energy requirements and the indoor air quality of a building by opening and closing doors and windows.
In this paper we approach the subject of ventilation and occupant behavior in multifamily buildings by asking three questions: 1) why and how do occupants interact with ventilation in an apartment building, 2) how does the physical environment (i.
One of the most important reasons for ventilation of dwellings is moisture control. Ventilation strategies differ.
