BS EN 16211:2015

Ventilation for buildings. Measurement of air flows on site. Methods

Status : Current, Project Underway   Published : July 2015



This European Standard specifies simplified methods for the measurement of air flows on site. It provides a description of the air flow methods and how measurements are performed within the margins of stipulated method uncertainties.

One measurement method is to take point velocity measurements across a cross-section of a duct to obtain the air flow. This simplified method is an alternative to the method described in ISO 3966 and EN 12599. This European Standard requests certain measurement conditions (length of straight duct and uniform velocity profile) to be met to achieve the stipulated measurement uncertainties for the simplified method.
