Human thermal comfort is influenced by psychological as well as physiological factors. Several comfort indices, such as PMV, PPD, TSENS, ET*, DISC, and SET* (see nomenclature) have been developed.
Megri A.C., El Naqa I., Haghighat F.
This paper reviews the literature for evidence of links between ventilation rates in dwellings and moisture related respiratory health with a particular focus on house dust mites (HDM) and fungal growth.
Davies M., Ucci M., MacCarthy M., Oreszczyn T., Ridley I., Mumovic D., Singh, Pretlove S.
The paper presents a procedure to estimate natural ventilation flow rates through buildings.
Marques da Silva F., Saraiva J.G.
This paper introduces a ventilation system that combines buried-pipes with multi-purpose windows with the aim of finding an energy efficient, environment-protecting and low-cost way to improve the indoor environment.
Youxiong G., Bing W.
A building contains a number of large openings, such as doors and staircases.
C. Blomqvist, M. Sandberg
This paper reports a critical analysis of the assessment of contaminant removal efficiency.
Akoua A.A., Allard F., Behghein C., Collignan B.
Railway platform spot cooling has become an increasingly attractive means to improve thermal comfort conditions of existing subway stations. This paper presents a systematic approach to evaluate the effectiveness of platform spot cooling.

Heat loss monitoring from a thermal manikin was undertaken representing an occupant in a classroom during a lesson period of 80 minutes in which the room temperature was increased from 21 to 24C for various airflow velocity configurations.

The aim of that guidebook (74 pp), published by REHVA is to provide a clear analysis of the definitions of ventilation effectiveness and to present case study examples
Mundt E., Mathisen H.M., Nielsen P.V., Moser A.
The definition of a good indoor climate is important to the success of a passenger rail coach, not only because it will decide its energy consumption and thus influence its sustainability but also because good comfort for long journeys is essentia
Liu Y., Moser A., Sinai Y.
In dwellings there is a desire to reduce ventilation heat loss, by reducing uncontrollable air infiltration, at the same time as providing adequate indoor air quality by controllable background ventilation.
Ridley I., Fox J., Oreszczyn T.
The term air conditioning not only prescribes comfort temperature and relative humidity, but also the quality of air inside the room. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has become a concomitant of air conditioning.
SA Grace, D Mohan Lal, C. Sharmeela
‘Supply air’ windows are designed with an air gap between the inner panes of glass that is used as the incoming air path for room ventilation; air is pre-warmed within the window and thereby avoids the sensation of draughts.
McEvoy M.E., Southall R.
A methodology is presented for determining the air flow rate through a stack-ventilated single-spacedenclosure bearing a roof-mounted ventilation tower.
Syrios K., Hunt G.R.
The purpose of this study was to find out the local intensity and extent of doorway draughts, the functioning of air curtains, and the variation of the neutral pressure levels in 18 industrial premises.
A. Valkeapää, H. Anttonen
The non-uniform behaviour of the air inside a room, which is important in comfort analysis, can be evaluated by zonal models.
L. Mora, E. Wurtz, K. Cordeiro Mendonça, C. Inard
The aim of this paper is to discuss the impact of the relation between varying indoor and outdoor conditions on the ventilation loads of buildings and to provide HVAC designers with the respective information needed for the optimum dimensioning of

One of the two air distribution systems serving the office rooms of a 25-year-old large office building was balanced in autumn 2002. The supply and extract air flow rates of 173 office rooms were measured before and after balancing.

In order to study the energy performance of a school building incorporating a hybrid ventilation system in Grong, Norway, a detailed field experiment was carried out.
Wachenfeldt B.j., Tjelflaat P.O.
It is only fairly recently that scientific and public concerns have focused on the probable health risk that the presence of air pollutants can cause in residential or non-industrial buildings.
