Favorite New release! AIVC Ventilation Information Paper 41: Impact of wind on the airtightness test results

The Air Infiltration & Ventilation Centre has just released Ventilation Information Paper no 41: Impact of wind on the airtightness test results. This paper aims to present and discuss the calculation method of standard ISO 9972 regarding the uncertainty induced by wind; gather published knowledge and determining what further research is needed on the quantification of the wind impact on airtightness tests results (including numerical simulations, laboratory and on-site measurements studies) and; give guidance for minimizing and better estimating the wind impact on airtightness tests results.

12th International BUILDAIR-Symposium – 25-26 June 2021

The International BUILDAIR Symposium will be held on June 25th and 26th, 2021. In view of the still tense corona situation, the meeting will take place as an bilingual online conference this year. 

The Symposium offers an ambitious programme. Among other things, the presentations will deal with measuring techniques, gluing and sealing difficult details, minimizing the air permeability of materials, quality assurance for very technology-intensive objects and measuring technology for very tall buildings. In addition, the question is discussed whether there can be leakages that can be tolerated. Take a look at the lecture programme right now!
