Estimation of leakage in ventilation ducting

CIM Bulletin, Vol. 95, No. 1060, 2002

G. Auld

A simple method is presented whereby the additional quantity and static pressure necessary to compensate for ventilation duct leakage may be estimated using the circular reference functions of modern spreadsheets. Favourable comparisons have been made to the National Coal Board (United Kingdom) design charts and to a case study analysis.
