Title Leakage measurement and tightness testing with tracer gas
Original title Läckagemätning och täthetskontroll med hjälp av spårgas [in Swedish]
Bibliographic information Undersökningsrapport AMTV 105/76, Arbetarskyddsstyrelsen, Fack, 100 26 Stockholm, Sweden, 1976. 38p. 5 ref.
Abstract This report describes methods for determining the air tightness and air leakage of rooms by means of mathematical models. The model used for evaluating the air tightness is a standard model for dilution. Since no applicable method exists for measuring leakage, the probable amount of leakage, the lay-out of the ventilation system and the rooms and the desired information must be considered. Results should be presented as the fraction of the contamination that is transferred or as the air flow between the rooms.
