One of the aims of the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre is to encourage the collection and dissemination of air infiltration and airflow data as well as energy use data arising from programmes of research and experimental investigation.
The AIVC's collection of technical notes on subjects including ventilation, infiltration, indoor air movement, and measurement techniques.
TN 32: Reporting guidelines for the measurement of airflows and related factors in buildings | 1991 | English | 148 pp
TN 31: 1990 Survey of Current Research into Air Infiltration and Related Air Quality Problems in Buildings | 1990 | English | 199 pp
The COMIS workshop (Conjunction of Multlzone Infiltration Specialists) was a Joint research effort to develop a multlzone Infiltration model.
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 main objective of this report was to provide a concise introduction into the subject of air change efficiency.
