  • Air Flow Meters to Measure Air Velocity and Air Pressure

    Air flow meters are used to measure air velocity and air pressure. Depending on the type of application, air flow meters are made as hot-wire air flow meters or pocket weather flow meters, both of which can measure air velocity and air pressure. The results of measuring the air velocity can be stored in the memory of the device depending on the model. There are even data loggers for air velocity ...

  • Computational modelling of airflow in urban street canyon and comparison with measurements

    The main goal of this study was to predict the airflow in a street canyon surrounded by an urban area using CFD modelling. In the street geometry described in the main part, the actual airflow directly influences air infiltration into buildings. Different models of turbulence were tested as well as specific wind boundary conditions. A correct assignment of boundary conditions (i.e., mainly wind ...

  • Online flow measurement

    Background The undershoot weir in Hohensaaten was built in 1913. It has three openings and regulates the discharge from the Oderbruch and from the Finow canal into the Hohensaaten-Friedrichsthaler-waterway. Moreover, it protects parts of the Oderbruch against Oder floods. The weir controls the waterlevels in the Havel-Oder-waterway and in the reach of Niederfinow- Hohensaaten. ...

  • Thermal comfort study of air-conditioned university laboratories

    In tertiary education institutions, good indoor air quality (IAQ) provides a conducive environment for teaching and learning activities. A field study on the environmental conditions and occupants’ comfort was carried out in six laboratories at Universiti Sains Malaysia. The study evaluates the current thermal comfort conditions using objective measurement and subjective assessment. The measured ...

  • Modelling of vehicle-induced turbulence in air pollution studies for streets

    Vehicle-induced turbulence can be an important factor of pollutant dispersion in urban areas, especially under conditions of low wind speeds which are typical for street canyons. An experimental concept (Plate, 1982) for modelling the effects of vehicle-induced turbulence was applied in the present study. The movement of vehicles was simulated in a boundary-layer wind tunnel by small metal plates ...

  • Feasibility Study of an Express Assessment Protocol for the Indoor Air Quality of Air-conditioned Offices

    It is costly to sample all major toxic pollutants in community air. Sampling should be conducted based on an assessment strategy and monitoring planning. Assessment methods that rely on monitoring some representative pollutants have been proposed variously at different times. In Hong Kong, the Environmental Protection Department (HKEPD) launched an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) certification scheme to ...

  • On the parameterization of the roughness length for the air-sea interface in free convection

    The roughness length at the air-sea interface during free convection (z0fc) is mainly related to the convective velocity (w*) rather than the friction velocity (u*). The parameterization of z0fc with w * 2 /g as proposed by Abdella and DAlessio in 2003 is evaluated. It is shown that their proposed formula is consistent with field measurements. In order to avoid self-correlation by using u*, a new ...

  • Measurement of atmospheric particles and anionic species across central Taiwan

    The ambient air concentrations and fluxes of various anionic species were sampled by MOUDI, TSP and dry deposition plates at a traffic sampling site in Taichung, central Taiwan. In the sampling period, from September to December 2000, the ambient air particle concentrations (PM1, PM2.5, PM10 and TSP) were lower in the September than in the ...

  • The seasonal variation of urban air quality in northern European conditions

    Meteorological conditions in northern Europe vary widely with the seasons. Consequently, the seasonal variation of urban air pollution is, to a large extent, determined by those meteorological variables which are important for air quality. We present first results on the yearly variation of atmospheric stability (and the occurrence of inversion layers), wind velocity, ambient temperature, solar ...

  • Sewer Siphon Assessment and Air Jumper Design

    ABSTRACTIn response to customer complaints about sewer odor, Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD), California launched a project to investigate the ventilation requirements of existing sewer siphons, to verify adequacy of existing air jumper operation, and determine the need for new air jumpers or additional air jumper capacity. The challenge was assessing sewer siphon air jumper adequacy ...

  • Particle re-suspension in street canyon with two-way traffic

    The paper focuses on determination of the wind threshold velocity of re-suspension (at the height of 10 m) and the near-ground air threshold velocity of re-suspension (at the height of 0.25 m) for particles of size 10 µm in a particular urban street canyon with two-way traffic. The wind threshold velocity of re-suspension is derived from a long-term measurement carried out in the city of Brno. A ...
