Building and ductwork airtightness represent a key challenge towards very-low energy buildings and therefore towards the ambitious 2020 targets set in the recast of the energy performance of buildings directive.
BUILDAIR Symposium 2011
This page lists the Proceedings (titles and abstracts) of the sixth International BUILDAIR Symposium on Building and Ductwork Airtightness , 6 May 2011, in Berlin, Germany
Contains 14 titles and abstracts.
The objective of the WTA* data sheet “Air tightness in existing buildings” is to support planners and contractors in modernizing and renovating buildings.
Determining required air flow rates in large buildings – discussion of reference values | 2011 | English, German
This presentation will give an introduction to the approach of determining the required number of testing fans when conducting air tightness measurements of large buildings.
Field Determination of Water Penetration of Windows using Blowerdoor and Infrared Camera | 2011 | English, German
The manufactures tests of windows in Europe are executed in accordance with the CE-directive. Air- and water tightness testing are performed in accordance with EN 1026 and classified in accordance with EN12207.
Experiences in air permeability: round-robin tests in Germany by FLiB e. V. | 2011 | English, German
The Association for Air Tightness in Buildings (FLiB e.V.) offers air tightness testing teams the possibility to check their testing performance as well as that of their equipment.
Pressure distribution and reflow paths with BlowerDoor measurements of large buildings | 2011 | English, German
During the BlowerDoor building test, it must be ensured that all building parts of the test building or the test section have air connection, and that the test object can be considered one single zone.
The round-robin test of Czech airtightness providers was organised in order to obtain information about the measurement equipment generally used and in order to compare the test results given by different technicians operating with different devic
The contribution informs about the foundation of a professional network of Czech airtightness test providers and gives basic information about the organisation and activities of this association.An idea of closer cooperation between Czech building
The actual question is as follows: “Is the building envelope of the first passive house in China sufficiently airtight?” To determine air-tightness in China, a pressure differential test was to be conducted.
Introduction to the new German Industrial Standard DIN 4108, Part 7 with an outlook to Part 11 (currently being amended) | 2011 | English, German
The new Part 7 of the Thermal Insulation Standard DIN 4108 describes the permanent design of the airtight layer of heated or air-conditioned buildings. In the chapter on requirements, some terms have been redefined.
Quality assurance for adhesive-based joint technology in the design of airtight layers | 2011 | English, German
To describe the quality of adhesive joints and connections for airtight layers, our research includes comprehensive investigations into the effect of different working conditions and accelerated aging.
Air permeability requirements for air barrier materials in passive houses – Comparison of the air permeability of eight commercial brands of OSB | 2011 | English, German
Today, labels introduced in some countries to certify standardised low energy buildings, such as ‘Passive House’ in Germany and ‘Minenergie’ in Switzerland, are becoming increasingly applied in Europe.
The air tightness of building has been a serious problem over the last 30 years. In 1979 the international Air Infiltration Centre (AIC) was erected within the International Energy Agency (IEA) platform.
Impact of ductwork airtightness and conduction losses on heat recovery efficiency | 2011 | English, German
We have developed a simple model to estimate ductwork leakage and heat conduction losses in steady-state conditions for a balanced ventilation system.
