Abstract : Air leakage has a number of important implications in relation to the performance of buildings. It occurs through cracks and openings in windows, doors, walls and roof. Its extent depends on the design and condition of the building enclosure, the quality of materials and workmanship and the air pressure differences acting across the cracks and openings. Air leakage into buildings is called infiltration and leakage outward, exfiltration. (Author)
