The principle of displacement ventilation involves air supply and distribution in a room by upwards displacement, i.e. as direct as possible through-flow in the occupied zone in order to achieve high ventilation efficiency.
Ventilation Information Papers
Ventilation Information Papers (VIP) are a series of typically short AIVC publications (in most cases 6 to 10 pages) intended for giving a basic knowledge of some aspects related to the air infiltration and/or the ventilation.
Addressing successful solutions to counterbalance the energy and environmental effects of air conditioning is a strong requirement for the future.
Natural ventilation is one of the most effective passive cooling techniques.
VIP 02: Indoor Air Pollutants Part 1: General description of pollutants, levels and standards | 2003 | English, French | 12 pp
Pollutants found in indoor air are often several times higher than outdoors. Indoor air pollutants cause effects ranging from odor, annoyance, and irritation to illness, cancer, and even death.
The necessity to make waterproof sanitary water ducts or central heating tubing and to make airtight natural gas distribution tubing is of primary importance to both construction professionals and the public.
