- When: 01 Apr - 13 Apr 2021
The Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (https://www.aivc.org/) in collaboration with IEA EBC Annex 86 “Energy Efficient Indoor Air Quality Management in Residential Buildings” (https://annex86.iea-ebc.org/), facilitated by INIVE (http://www.inive.org/), are organizing a workshop consisting of a series of three webinars on:
• April 1st, 2021 (17:00-18:30 CET): Building ventilation: How does it affect SARS-CoV-2 transmission?
In this webinar, the potential mitigating role of building ventilation in the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic will be addressed. In the first part of the webinar, the focus will be on building ventilation as one of the mechanisms that affects exposure to infectious aerosol and the uncertainty in relating exposure to airborne transmission of the virus. The second part of the webinar, will be about the airflow in real indoor environments, with results from field experiments with aerosol sources and the use of pressure difference in buildings to control the spread of aerosols.
• April 8th , 2021 (09:00-10:30 CET): IAQ and Ventilation Metrics
In this webinar, the discussion will be about the road towards a robust comprehensive IAQ metric for the assessment of the performance of ventilation. It sets the starting stage for subtask 1 of the new IEA EBC Annex 86 ‘energy efficient IAQ management in residential buildings. After a short introduction, the three speakers will first look at the open issues that remain after the work in Annex 68, then explore methodological updates, future potential and limitations for the DALY method included in the suite of metrics proposed by that annex and finally discuss the newly proposed TAIL rating scheme. After all this, there is time for discussion and input for future work.
• April 13th, 2021 (17:00-18:30 CET): Big data, IAQ and ventilation
Participation to the webinar is free but requires you to register for the event.
