Aerosol detection in HVAC duct components is a critical component of contaminant detection and analysis.
Adam Arabian and Ellen Brehob
There is a need to improve the accuracy of infrared thermography for measuring the temperature distribution of building exterior surfaces.
Lina Yang and Yuguo Li
Windcatchers are roof mounted devices that use the action of the wind to provide top down natural ventilation to a room. Here, fresh air is channelled into a room while, at the same time, stale air is drawn out.
Benjamin M. Jones and Ray Kirby
In this paper, a review is made of the adaptive thermal comfort model. This is then applied and compared with the performance of the conventional thermal comfort model for a school located in a Mediterranean weather environment.
Eusébio Z. E. Conceição, Abel R. L. Nunes, João M. M. Gomes and Mª Manuela J. R. Lúcio
Hybrid ventilation represents an interesting option both to guarantee good air quality for indoor environments and to reduce the energy consumption related to the mechanical motivation of the air.
Olivier Jung, Mohamed El Mankibi, Andrea Kindinis and Pierre Michel
Nowadays many people spend most of their time indoors, so the quality of indoor air has significantly impacted human health and comfort.

Stratum ventilation is a recently proposed air distribution system. It works by creating a layer of fresher air in the occupants' breathing zone.
Zhang Lin, CF Tsang, TT Chow, KF Fong and Ting Yao
Ventilation systems are primarily designed for ensuring good indoor air quality (IAQ). However, building energy requirements tend to put demand on reducing air change rates.
Juslin Koffi, Francis Allard and Jean-Jacques Akoua
Hybrid ventilation systems combine the superior properties of natural and mechanical ventilation systems to reduce energy consumption.
Selin Aradag, Ozgur Bayer, Caner Karatas, Umit Poyraz, Ozan Kalkan, Firat Haciahmetoglu, Yalcin Efe , Mustafa Kahvecioglu and Alican Goncu
Distributed demand control ventilation (DDCV) has shown potential for improving both indoor air quality (IAQ) and energy consumption over conventional ventilation systems.
Vikas Dhummi, Dustin Demetriou, Harish J. Palanthandalam-Madapusi, H. Ezzat Khalifa, and Can Isik
Mixing and displacement ventilation are common systems in commercial buildings, while mixing ventilation is used in residential buildings.
Bjarne W. Olesen, Angela Simone, Michal Krajčík, Francesco Causone and Michele De Carli
Nowadays, the ceiling slot diffuser is very popular in offices.
Guangyu Cao, Mika Ruponen, Kim Hagström and Jarek Kurnitski
There are various demands for air-conditioning in each office space resulting from the variability of thermal distribution caused by a bias of heat sources. Furthermore, individual demands on the thermal environment are diverse.
