Ventilation for Healthy Living
5.1 B (SI unit)
The ventilation air load can be calculated with the following formula if the required ventilation intake volume "Q m
(Ventilation air load) = γ · Q

= γ [kg/m
] × S [m
] × k × n [occupant/m
γ : Specific air gravity - 1.2 kg/m
S : Building's air-conditioned area
k : Thermal coefficient; generally 0.7 - 0.8.
n : The average population concentration is the inverse of the occupancy area per occupant. If the number of occupants in the
room is unclear, refer to the Floor space per occupant table below.
Vf : Ventilation air intake volume per occupant
Refer to the Required ventilation air intake volume per occupant table below.
