  • The building envelope as an air filter. 

    Taylor, Bruce J.; Webster, Robin; Imbabi, Mohammed S. (Elsevier http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0360-1323(98)00017-1, 1998-05)
    TAYLOR, B. J., WEBSTER, R. and IMBABI, M. S., 1998. The building envelope as an air filter. Building and Environment 34(3), pp. 353-361.
    Recent research suggests that fine-particulate air pollution increases the incidence of lung disease and premature death. In this paper, single fibre filter theory was used to predict the theoretical particulate collection ...
  • Dynamic insulation in multistorey buildings. 

    Taylor, Bruce J.; Imbabi, Mohammed S. (SAGE http://dx.doi.org/10.1177/014362449902000403, 1999-11)
    TAYLOR, B. J. and IMBABI, M. S., 1999. Dynamic insulation in multistorey buildings. Building Services Engineering Research and Technology, 20(4), pp. 179-184.
    Dynamic insulation permits the movement of air and moisture through the external walls of a building to reduce heat loss and achieve high indoor air quality. The present paper details a pilot study carried out to examine ...
  • The effect of air film thermal resistance on the behaviour of dynamic insulation. 

    Taylor, Bruce J.; Imbabi, Mohammed S. (Elsevier. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0360-1323(97)00012-7, 1997-09)
    TAYLOR, B. J. and IMBABI, M. S., 1997. The effect of air film thermal resistance on the behaviour of dynamic insulation. Building and Environment 32(5), pp. 397-404.
    The authors' previous analysis of dynamic insulation is extended to include the inner and outer air film resistances with the objective of modelling the variation in surface temperature with airflow. The boundary condition ...
  • Environmental design using dynamic insulation. 

    Taylor, Bruce J.; Imbabi, Mohammed S. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers., 2000-07)
    TAYLOR, B. J. and IMBABI, M. S., 2000. Environmental design using dynamic insulation. ASHRAE Transactions, 106(1), pp. 15- 26.
    In conventional airtight buildings, the architect has considerable freedom to decide how much the external environment will influence the internal heating, cooling, and ventilation loads. The services engineer provides the ...
  • The use of dynamic and diffusive insulation for combined heat recovery and ventilation in buildings. 

    Taylor, Bruce J.; Webster, Robin; Imbabi, Mohammed S. (Building Environmental Performance Analysis Club (BEPAC), 1997-02)
    TAYLOR, B. J., WEBSTER, R. and IMBABI, M. S., 1997. The use of dynamic and diffusive insulation for combined heat recovery and ventilation in buildings. BEPAC/EPSRC Sustainable Building Conference. 5-6 February 1997. Abingdon. Pp. 168-174.
