The quality of indoor environments influences satisfaction, health, and work performance of occupants.
Alan Kabanshi, Hans Wigö, Marijke Keus van de Poll, Robert Ljung, Patrik Sörqvist
Longitudinal ventilation is a common technique for smoke management during a fire accident within tunnels.
Ali Kazemipour, Hossein Afshin and Bijan Farhanieh
A common room-heating technique involves the use of a wall-mounted radiator without forced convection.
Amir Sattari
Electric fans used for cooling or local ventilation are common household appliances around the world, especially in developing countries. They offer many advantages such as low cost and energy savings, as well as easy implementation.
Ran Gao, Wei Zhang, Ying Zhang, Angui Li
In this paper, the numerical and experimental performance of a new Thai Modern Façade (TMF) are investigated. Two configurations were considered namely, the Thai Modern Façade wall (TMF) and the Thai modern façade wall with fin (TMF-WF).
T. Ananacha, W. Puangsombut, J. Hirunlabh, J. Khedari
This paper reports on research to analyze the indoor air quality (IAQ) and the concentration and varying patterns of CO2, formaldehyde and TVOC in commercial buildings located in Chongqing, South-West China.
Li Cheng, Baizhan Li, A. N. Baldwin, Yong Ding, Wei Yu, Liu Hong
The aim of this study was to determine the concentration of Legionella pneumophila in the surface dust of the air ducts of central air conditioning systems and evaluate its effects on indoor air quality.

A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) is used to create a balanced ventilation system in residential buildings and as an energy-saving measure.
Boualem Ouazia, Rock Glazer, Franck Szadkowski, Clifford Hoyme
Nowadays, there is increasing construction of high-rise buildings. Stack effect is one of the airflow characteristics in this type of tall buildings.
Wenwen Yang, Naiping Gao
Previous studies on single-sided natural ventilation are mostly limited to very simple physical models, such as a single-room or single-storey building.
Z.T. Ai, C.M. Mak
One of the most commonly used strategies to reduce the heating demand in low energy buildings is reducing the leakage level of the building envelope.
Jelle Laverge, Marc Delghust, Arnold Janssens
Emergency Temporary Housing units consisting of a light-gauge steel brace construction were built following the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11, 2011 (see Appendix).
Yoshinori Honma
Indoor temperature and humidity conditions as well as CO2 and airborne mould concentrations were measured in four manor schools in the Estonian cold climate.
Targo Kalamees, Alan Väli, Urve Kallavus, Lembit Kurik, Üllar Alev
Stack ventilation systems were installed in German schools constructed around 1900 and are no longer in operation. The aim of this study was to show how reactivating these systems could improve the indoor air quality in classrooms.
Runa T Hellwig, Michael Sedlmeier, Christian Tanzer
Occupants spend a significant amount of time indoors where temperature and air quality has an important impact on their comfort, health and work performance.
Abigail Hathway, Ilias Papakonstantis, Adorkor Bruce-Konuah, Wernher Brevis
Door operation and the subsequent passage of occupants through the doorway can cause containment failures in hospital isolation rooms. Typically hinged doors are used between the isolation room and anteroom/corridor in healthcare facilities.
Petri Kalliomäki, Pekka Saarinen, Julian W Tang, Hannu Koskela
Exposure to air pollution from both outdoor and indoor origins can cause a myriad adverse health effects including cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, lung cancer and mortality.
Zhiwen Luo, Naiping Gao
This paper investigates thermal sensation in an air conditioned space with and without a water source such as a water pond and small fountain in Thailand.
Sudaporn Sudprasert, Kanlaya Kasorn, Joseph Khedari
A literature study is presented on the theories and models dealing with buoyancy-driven ventilation in rooms.
Karl Terpager Andersen
Vehicular air conditioning systems are directly affected by the ducts and fans of the ventilation system.
