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

    Author : Ragib Kadribegovic; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    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.

  2. 2. Determination and control of some pollutants in indoor environments

    Author : Pawel Markowicz; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; indoor air quality; indoor pollutants; dampness; purification; tobacco smoke;

    Abstract : Unsatisfactory indoor air quality (IAQ) may result from polluting emissions that are spread from building materials such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and/or microbial components or from various kinds of human activity such as smoking. Different methods are available to limit the exposure to unwanted pollutants and improve human wellbeing and health. READ MORE

  3. 3. Photocatalysis for Indoor Air Cleaning : In situ FTIR and DFT Study of Acetaldehyde Photo-Oxidation on TiO2 and Sulfate-Modified TiO2

    Author : Bozhidar Stefanov; Lars Österlund; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TiO2; acetaldehyde; crotonaldehyde; dimer; adsorption; DFT; FTIR; photocatalysis; micro-kinetic modeling; acid–base properties; surface functionalization; Solid State Physics; Fasta tillståndets fysik; Materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : Acetaldehyde is among the group of VOC’s causing the so-called "sick building" syndrome. WHO has estimated that this problem, related to the indoor air-quality, affects one third of all buildings worldwide. TiO2 is an attractive material for the photocatalytic removal of VOC’s in the indoor environment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Demand based control of indoor climate in office buildings. Design of local and central feed-forward control systems for high comfort, low energy use and low peak power

    Author : Mattias Gruber; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; demand based control; IAQ; central control; local control; disturbance rejection; thermal climate; HVAC; energy efficiency; feed-forward; Building services engineering; office buildings;

    Abstract : In this work, a number of novel strategies for controlling the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems in office buildings have been designed and evaluated. The purpose of the control strategies is to improve the match between what is supplied by the HVAC-systems and what is required to achieve a desirable indoor climate in the building. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling as a Tool to Evaluate Continuously Measured Concentration Value of Gaseous Indoor Air Pollutants

    Author : Martin Kraenzmer; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NO2; modeling; TVOC; modelling; indoor air; pollutants; continuous monitoring; NOx; VOC; NO; O3; continuous measurement; CO; CO2;

    Abstract : Results from studies of air quality in buildings are often difficult to interpret and evaluate and, in order to avoid erroneous conclusions, special evaluating tools may be needed. Modelling in various forms can be used as a method of evaluating measured values from such investigations. READ MORE
