Book on IAQ
Dear all

Could some one give me a reference on a book or paper that gives the definition of the following Indoor Air Quality parameters:

Mean age of air

Mean radiant temperature

Predicted mean vote (PMV)

Predicted percentage dissatisfied (PPD)

Relative humidity

And how to calculate them for a CFD code ?.

Thanks a lot.

Kind Regards

Re: Book on IAQ
You'll find most or all of this defined in the ASHRAE Fundamentals book.

FLOVENT HVAC-specific software by Flomerics computes all of this for you automatically.
