This paper outlines the history, scientific basis and application of several national standard IGU durability tests, namely, the IGU durability Eurocode, the British Standard, the American Standard, and the Canadian IGU durability codes. The paper discusses and traces the development of IGU...
Airflow behavior inside a cleanroom with vertical unidirectional flow has been investigated. The design parameters, such as porosity and height of raised floor, width of cleanroom and inlet velocity profile, which affect the uniformity of air velocity distribution inside the cleanroom have been...
The pressure field in fluid systems reflects the flow configuration. Measurements of the pressure along the perimeter of a slot ventilated room have been conducted for different room sizes. The momentum of the jet at the end of the room is decreased with increasing room length. The impingement...
The optimisation approach to any activity in technology, economics or other fields, is aimed at finding methods of determining the best solutions in an objective way. In particular, the optimisation of composite materials deals with problems of selecting the values of several variables which...
The development and performance of a small relative humidity sensor is described, capable of distinguishing humidities over distances only millimetres apart, allowing humidities to be measured in the microenvironments of biocontaminants such as dust mites and mould. The sensor can, for example,...
Computer-Aided Design tools have generated new possibilities in the passive solar design of buildings. WINSHADE is an integrated computer tool for the design of passive solar control through building fenestrations. It is based on the generation and the optimization paradigms of Computer Aided...
While designing fixed shading devices, both visual and climatic comfort conditions should be taken into consideration. The subject which shading device would be more efficient under certain climatic conditions requires the calculation of daylight availability and daylight glare index in the...
This paper provides a detailed examination of the energy and greenhouse emissions associated with the on-site construction of a selection of alternative wood, steel and concrete structural assemblies. The primary objective of the work is to ascertain the relative proportion that the construction...
Hypocaust, an ancient Roman concept for keeping the inside of buildings warm, has been explained with a survey of a few modern buildings based on these concepts and using solar heat employing a number of design variations. Results expressed in terms of energy requirements per m 2 of floor area...
Recent research suggests that fine-particulate air pollution increases the incidence of lung disease and premature death. In this paper, single fibre filter theory was used to predict the theoretical particulate collection efficiency of air permeable walls (dynamic insulation). The relationship...
