The main objective of this report was to provide an introduction to the subject of contaminant removal effectiveness. Existing literature in this subject area is limited, and tends to be very difficult for a newcomer to understand.
The AIVC's collection of technical notes on subjects including ventilation, infiltration, indoor air movement, and measurement techniques.
The main objective of this report was to provide a concise introduction into the subject of air change efficiency.
