There are a number of methods available concerning with air distribution in buildings. Within control research, one can find new control algorithms which have not been used in practice yet. These new algorithms open the possibility of developing and implementing of new demand controlled ventilation systems.
In a building the internal air motions are due both to differences in temperature and due to pressure differences induced by the ventilation system. Therefore, one fundamental question is to what extent one can with fan powered ventilation control the air motions within a building.
The aims of this paper is to report on development of methods to study the air motions in a multi room residence apartment using various combinations of exhaust and supply air management. The experimental work includes measurements of air flow rates in door openings in both directions and use of various tracer gas methods to determine the supply air flow to each room, and identifying flow paths.
In an accompanying paper (Björsell 1996) is reported on the results from a simulation of the performance of different control algorithms.
