Ventilation research on Australian residential construction
conference contributionposted on 2008-01-01, 00:00 authored by Mark LutherMark Luther
This paper applies established testing methods used to discover the ventilation performance of various residential building envelope construction in Australia. Under the definition of 'ventilation performance' we imply the building envelope leakage (or infiltration) the living space air change rates, the volumetric flow rates and the pathways of air flow between subfloor, room volume and roof spaces. All of the methods applied and discussed here are on-site, evidencebased performance of actual structures as tested by the Mobile Architecture & Built Environment Laboratory and Air Barrier Technologies.
