  1. 1. Some Factors Influencing Thermal Comfort and Air Quality in Residential Buildings. Field Measurements and Laboratory Tests

    Author : Ulf Krüger; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ventilation; air intakes; thermal comfort evaluation; air velocity; indoor air quality; air supply devices; occupation zone; air temperature fluctuations;

    Abstract : The main prerequisite for applying a specific ventilation system in residential buildings is that the demands set upon the indoor air quality and thermal climate can be satisfied. If this cannot be guaranteed using a simple exhaust system, a system with treated supply air, i.e. balanced ventilation, should be considered. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ultrafine Particles in the Indoor Environment: Field and Laboratory Measurements

    Author : Uve Matson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; airborne particles; aerosols; indoor air; outdoor air; air quality;

    Abstract : Clean air is one of the most fundamental human needs since poor air quality affects the health and the environment. It has been shown that people spend on average over 85 % of their time at work, home, school etc. Therefore, human exposure to air pollution may occur mostly indoors. Despite this fact, outdoor air pollution is also important. READ MORE

  3. 3. The indoor environment in schools : Respiratory effects and air quality

    Author : Greta Smedje; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; Allergy; asthma; cat allergen; cleaning; dust; formaldehyde; furniture; mould; schoolchildren; ventilation; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; arbets- och miljömedicin; Occupational and Environmental Medicine;

    Abstract : The main objective of this work was to investigate relationships between the schoolenvironment and asthma and asthmatic symptoms in schoolchildren. Data on symptoms werecollected through postal questionnaires answered by 1,732 pupils in 39 randomly selectedschools, and were related to data on exposures obtained through hygienic measurements in theschools.

  4. 4. Ultrafine Particles in Indoor Air. Measurements and modelling

    Author : Uve Matson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; airborne particles; aerosols; ventilation; air quality; outdoor air;

    Abstract : Clean air is one of the most fundamental human needs. Since people spen on average over 85% of their time indoors at work, home, school etc., human exposure to air pollution may mostly occur indoors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Performance-based design of ventilation systems. Potential and limitations regarding indoor air quality

    Author : Ragib Kadribegovic; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ventilation; prescriptive design; indoor air quality; air cleaning; energy efficiency; performance-based design; recirculation;

    Abstract : It has been increasingly common to design for increased ventilation rates above legislative requirements specified in building codes and other norms as the most optimum way to improve indoor air quality. However, this concept has recently been challenged, for example, by studies demonstrating that the emissions or pollution from used traditional particle filters increases proportionally with air flow through the filter.
