Abstract

A new 20 litre glass chamber for the determination of emissions from materials used for construction, furnishing, cleaning, etc under controlled air velocity and turbulence is described. Profiles of air velocity and turbulence, obtained with precisely positioned hot wire anemometric probes, are reported. Because of the homogeneous velocity field and its tight correlation with the fan rotation speed, the chamber overcomes the problem of the number and placement of positions needed to measure the air velocity field above a test specimen in a representative way.
