Indoor air performance calculations and values with obscure origins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper provides historical context for several commonly used values that are pertinent to indoor air quality: attic ventilation area, wind factors for infiltration, and radon action levels. In each case, the clarity implied by the adoption of the values is greater than the accuracy understood at the time of adoption, and this point was made in each case by those presenting the information that led to the adoption. However, once the values became adopted, the scientific research either stalled or became more narrowly framed.
