In recent years, the 'usability' of ventilation and air infiltration models (both public domain and commercially available) has increased greatly. Possible areas of application for 15 such models are identified in this report.
Current ventilation practice in large non-domestic buildings as well as future trends and developments are all examined in this publication. Examples considered include atria, auditoria, sports halls, enclosed shopping malls and offices.
As an introductory note, this aims to place the need for cooling for thermal comfort into the context of overall energy efficient building design. Additionally, it stresses the role of ventilation in meeting cooling requirements.
The objectives of this work are: first to determine the theoretical energy requirements per constant mien unit of outdoor air used for ventilation for a number of different climates and locations in North America and Europe; and secondly to determ
The report begins by reviewing some basic questions about ventilation efficiency. The subject is then presented in greater detail and finally an example of the prediction of ventilation efficiency in an office enclosure is given.
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.
