Experimental insights into the airtightness measurement of a house-sized chamber in a sheltered environment using blower door and pulse methods (2019)
Journal Article
Zheng, X., Cooper, E., Mazzon, J., Wallis, I., & Wood, C. (2019). Experimental insights into the airtightness measurement of a house-sized chamber in a sheltered environment using blower door and pulse methods. Building and Environment, 162, doi:10.1016/j.buildenv.2019.106269

This paper introduces a comparison study of measuring the airtightness of a house-sized test chamber using the novel pulse technique and a low range blower door method in a sheltered environment. Eight different testing plates were prepared and appli... Read More

Experimental Studies of a Pulse Pressurisation Technique for Measuring Building Airtightness (2019)
Journal Article
Zheng, X., Zu, Y., Cooper, E., Gillott, M., Tetlow, D., Riffat, S., & Wood, C. (2019). Experimental Studies of a Pulse Pressurisation Technique for Measuring Building Airtightness. Future Cities and Environment, 5(1), 1-17. doi:10.5334/fce.66

A pulse pressurisation technique is developed and utilised for determining building leakage at low pressure, based on a "quasi-steady pulse" concept. The underlying principle of the technique is to subject the building envelope to a known volume chan... Read More
