The study is focused on the evaluation of air permeability and ventilation rate in Italian classrooms. Measurements were performed in 16 naturally ventilated classrooms located in Cassino, Central Italy. Classrooms’ airtightness was evaluated through the fan pressurization method. Air exchange rates where both estimated from the blower door results and measured using a CO2 decay test method. The effect of the periodic manual airing of the classrooms (through window and door opening) was also investigated performing CO2 and particle number concentration measurements during the school time.

Abstract

The study is focused on the evaluation of air permeability and ventilation rate in Italian classrooms. Measurements were performed in 16 naturally ventilated classrooms located in Cassino, Central Italy. Classrooms’ airtightness was evaluated through the fan pressurization method. Air exchange rates where both estimated from the blower door results and measured using a CO2 decay test method. The effect of the periodic manual airing of the classrooms (through window and door opening) was also investigated performing CO2 and particle number concentration measurements during the school time.
