UK and European Regulation and the law in relation to UKCA and CE marking of fire dampers in ventilation systems. The law, standards and best practice in relation to fire protection.
Low energy VAV (variable air volume) systems and demand based ventilation systems
VAV systems in relation to good indoor air quality and COVID-19
Constant pressure ductwork systems
VAV and the lowest energy buildings
Comfort in the indoor
The 6 factors controlling thermal comfort, the PMV and PPD, draught rating, asymmetric temperature difference, glare index, design and modelling to guarantee thermal comfort.
Displacement and mixing ventilation, natural, mechanical and mixed-mode ventilation, chilled beams and fan coil units, VRF-, VRV- and VAV-based ventilation systems.
Improvement of building efficiency through optimised design and correct integration of ventilation system components – air handling units, chillers, ducting, dampers, terminal units and control methods. Finding a balance between energy efficiency, capital investment, industry regulations and comfort.
