Abstract

The measuring method of airflow rates of building equipments is important and is required in many standards, codes, etc. and the committee of the ventilation planning in the building of SHASE (Society of Heating, Air-conditioning and Sanitary Engineering), Japan is about to propose the standard for "The Measuring Method of Airflow Rates of Building Equipments". It is aimed to ensure the quality of indoor environment and the performance of HVAC system under the situation that the existing methods are in the variety but less information for the choosing and its feasibility is available. The applied principles are 1) to collect available methods and provide the standard to practitioners which are feasible, 2) to include most of the methods applicable and available at this moment, 3) to cite and/or mention the existing standards, and coded, etc. and 4) to indicate the feasibility of the methods to practitioners. This paper provides overview of the measuring methods of airflow rate in buildings and also the framework of the proposed standard.
