Control of Air Leakage in Buildings.
Wilson, A. Grant
This discussion of air leakage emphasizes cause and provides suggestions for elimination of undesirable effects. Cause parameters described are--(1) pressure differential, (2) building shape, (3) temperature differential, (4) opening sizes, (5) mechanical system pressures, and (6) climatic factors. Effects discussed are--(1) increased mechanical costs, (2) disruption of proper thermal and humidity levels, (3) condensation problems, and (4) transfer of contaminants and smoke from area fires. Ten tables, charts, and photographs concerning building leakage parameters and effects are included. (MH)
