This European Standard describes the method to calculate the ventilation air flow rates for buildings to be used for applications such as energy calculations, heat and cooling load calculation, summer comfort and indoor air quality evaluation. The ventilation and air tightness requirements (as IAQ, heating and cooling, safety, fire protection…) are not part of the standard. For these different applications, the same iterative method is used but the input parameter should be selected according to the field of application. For specific applications a direct calculation is also defined in this standard. A simplified approach is also allowed at national level following prescribed rules of implementation.
