  1. 1. Some Factors Influencing Thermal Comfort and Air Quality in Residential Buildings. Field Measurements and Laboratory Tests

    Författare :Ulf Krüger; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :ventilation; air intakes; thermal comfort evaluation; air velocity; indoor air quality; air supply devices; occupation zone; air temperature fluctuations;

    Sammanfattning : The main prerequisite for applying a specific ventilation system in residential buildings is that the demands set upon the indoor air quality and thermal climate can be satisfied. If this cannot be guaranteed using a simple exhaust system, a system with treated supply air, i.e. balanced ventilation, should be considered. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Cabin Air Quality in Commercial Aircraft : Exposure, Symptoms and Signs

    Författare :Torsten Lindgren; Dan Norbäck; Gunilla Wieslander; Jan Sundell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; airline crew; aviation medicine; micro-organism; cabin air quality; air humidity; atopy; occupational exposure; environmental tobacco smoke ETS ; psychosocial work environment; Medicin; Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; arbets- och miljömedicin; Occupational and Environmental Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : The objective of the dissertation was to study the cabin environment, and identify personal and environmental risk factors, associated with symptoms, and perception of cabin air quality. Another objective was to study if ban of smoking, and increased relative air humidity on intercontinental flights, could have a beneficial health effect. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Ultrafine Particles in Indoor Air. Measurements and modelling

    Författare :Uve Matson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; airborne particles; aerosols; ventilation; air quality; outdoor air;

    Sammanfattning : Clean air is one of the most fundamental human needs. Since people spen on average over 85% of their time indoors at work, home, school etc., human exposure to air pollution may mostly occur indoors. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Impact of residential wood combustion on urban air quality

    Författare :Patricia Krecl; Christer Johansson; Johan Ström; Tami Bond; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; residential wood combustion; air quality; aerosols; black carbon; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; particulate matter; particle size distributions; source apportionment; positive matrix factorization; compound-specific radiocarbon analysis; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Wood combustion is mainly used in cold regions as a primary or supplemental space heating source in residential areas. In several industrialized countries, there is a renewed interest in residential wood combustion (RWC) as an alternative to fossil fuel and nuclear power consumption. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Ultrafine Particles in the Indoor Environment: Field and Laboratory Measurements

    Författare :Uve Matson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; airborne particles; aerosols; indoor air; outdoor air; air quality;

    Sammanfattning : Clean air is one of the most fundamental human needs since poor air quality affects the health and the environment. It has been shown that people spend on average over 85 % of their time at work, home, school etc. Therefore, human exposure to air pollution may occur mostly indoors. Despite this fact, outdoor air pollution is also important. LÄS MER
