European concerted action : Indoor Air Quality and its Impact on Man : Report no. 11 : Guidelines for ventilation requirements in buildingsFunded under: IC-COST
The present guidelines consider the total pollution load caused by materials in a building, its occupants and their activities. The goal is to protect the occupants from adverse health effects and to provide an indoor air quality which is perceived as acceptable by the large majority of the occupants. Three different comfort levels of perceived air quality are suggested. The available outdoor air quality and the ventilation effectiveness of the ventilated space are also considered. The ventilation rate required to provide the selected indoor air quality can then be calculated based on all pollution sources, the available outdoor air quality and the ventilation effectiveness of the ventilated space. The ventilation rates required for health and comfort are calculated separately and the highest value is used for design purposes.
