AIRAH have released the brochure for their upcoming Building Physics Forum.
The inaugural Building Physics Forum will explore ways of controlling flows of air moment across a building’s fundamental architecture.
The brochure not only contains biographies of the Forum’s presenters and what their presentations will be focusing on, but also includes the Forum’s programme.
According to the brochure, the keynote address from Professor Paul Cooper from the Sustainable Buildings Research Centre (SBRC) at the University of Wollongong, will focus on envelope and ventilation performance in buildings. His address will provide an overview of recent developments and efforts to improve the envelope and ventilation performance in buildings, research findings on natural and mixed-mode ventilation systems and associated control systems, research findings on thermal comfort in residential and high performance buildings, and the latest innovations on building envelope systems.
The presentation by Dr Mark Dewsbury from the University of Tasmania, will focus on how to achieve and ensure adequate minimal ventilation, and mitigating condensation and mould in new buildings. The presentation by Brett Beeson from Lehr Consultants International, will focus on how to cost effectively achieve less than five ACH50, vapour permeability and the installation of heat-exchange ventilation.
The presentation by Sean Maxwell from Efficiency Matrix, will focus on building performance research specifically in zonal air pressures, window operations and HVAC functions. The presentation by Andy Russell from the Proctor Group will focus on Japanese regulations for ventilation in air tight buildings, and how their regulations and practices can benefit Australia.
As well as the presentations, the Forum will also include a panel session and cocktail function.
The inaugural Building Physics Forum will be held on June 15 in Brisbane. Information on costs and where to register can be found here.
