The use of a guarded zone pressurization technique to measure air flow permeabilities of a multizone building. | 1988 | English
In the past few years, research efforts have been made to acquire accurate knowledge about infiltration and ventilation in multi-zone buildings.
Analysis of the influence of topography on climatic exposure of buildings (Climatological Data). | 1988 | English
This text contains comments to the poster presented at the 9th AlVC Conference in Gent, Belgium.
In the framework of a project of the International Energy Agency (IEA) , IEA-Annex XVIII - Demand Controlled Ventilating (DCV) Systems, which started in fall 1987, a review of the state of the art of already existing DCV systems and devices has be
An experimental study in reduced scale model for ventilation inside a sheep-fold has been studied.
Development of an efficient control algorithm for a multizone constant concentration tracer gas air infiltration measurement system. | 1988 | English
A constant concentration tracer gas (CCTG) measuring system needs a control algorithm to calculate, at each sampling time, the required tracer gas injection rate to keep the gas concentration at a target level.
The technique of tracer gas measurement has during recent years tended towards increasingly complicated measuring methods.
Indoor formaldyhyde levels in energy efficient homes with mechnical ventilation systems. | 1988 | English
Mechanical ventilation systems have been adopted in airtight energy- efficient houses in Canada to provide fresh air, remove moisture and indoor pollutants and provide a comfortable environment for the home-occupants.
The ventilation of a test room (LxWxH = 5.4x3.6x2.4 m) with a wall mounted heat source is investigated for two different air terminal devices.
Further studies of passive ventilation systems - assessment of design and performance criteria. | 1988 | English
Increases in building air tightness for purposes of energy saving have, unfortunately, also led to a significant increase in the number of instances of condensation damage, particularly in domestic properties.
Tracer gas techniques for measuring airflow rates in building systems are considered.
Air leakage through the building envelope is of great importance for the energy use of a building. However, from an indoor air quality standpoint, the size of interior leaks in e.g. multifamily buildings could be important as e.g.
Examinations about the air humidity in lived dwellings depending on different air ventilation systems using a new characteristic value. | 1988 | English
This work deals with problems of the air humidity in inhabited dwellings. A new approach is presented here which renders the definite diagnosis of humidity problems possible.
Traditionally air has been supplied from the ceiling to the occupants below opposing the buoyancy effects due to heat convected from people, lights and machines.
Ventilation produced by fluctuating pressure differences across a building appears to have received little attention . Such fluctuations are produced by gustiness of the wind or turbulence in the flow around a building.
This paper describes a two-dimensional numerical study, by finite-volume method of buoyancy-driven flow in a half-scale model of a stairwell.
The project is aimed to develop the quantitative method of visualization of the air steams in application to the indoor problems of heauilg , ventilating and air conditioning.
The influence of a controlled natural ventilation on the indoor radon decay products concentration: a case study. | 1988 | English
Air exchange rates in occupied buildings are difficult to assess due to their dependence on a multitude of climatic parameters and inhabitant behaviour.
The paper presents the development of a ventilation scheme for a large bus station and passenger interchange in Bilbao, Spain.
This paper is concerned with natural air flows between major construction cavities in New Zealand houses.
