Indoor air quality (IAQ) is an important aspect of maintaining human health and well-being, particularly since people spend most of their time indoors. Carpets, with their large surface area and dense fibre piles, have the potential to significantly impact IAQ by emitting and absorbing volatile organic compounds (VOC) from building materials and...

Understanding students' preferences of their study place, in particular acoustical and psychosocial preferences, is important to students' health and comfort. This study aimed to identify clusters of students with similar acoustical and psychosocial preferences, and to identify reasons for certain preferences of students in each cluster. A mixed...

People living in urban and industrialized societies, which are expanding globally, spend more than 90% of their time in the indoor environment, breathing indoor air (IA). Despite decades of research and advocacy, most countries do not have legislated indoor air quality (IAQ) performance standards for public spaces that address concentration...

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of ventilation was widely stressed and new protocols of ventilation were implemented in school buildings worldwide. In the Netherlands, schools were recommended to keep the windows and doors open, and after a national lockdown more stringent measures such as reduction of occupancy were introduced. In...

Research has shown that students differ in their preferences of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and psychosocial aspects of their study places. Since previous studies have mainly focused on identifying these preferences rather than investigating the different profiles of students, this study aimed at profiling students based on their IEQ and...

Op 5 januari 2020 maakt de WHO (World Health Organization) het eerste nieuws over de uitbraak van de ziekte COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019) als gevolg van een nieuw virus bekend. Op 11 maart 2020 wordt COVID-19, veroorzaakt door SARS-CoV-2 (SARS Coronavirus 2), door de WHO als een pandemie uitgeroepen. Op 4 april 2020 worden door de BBC 1...

A significant number of young people live in temporary homes, which are designed to fulfil basic needs and provide space for normal activities. However, it is unclear what those basic activities are. Moreover, the indoor environmental quality is often left out of the meaning of home, although activities and objects can affect its experienced...

The corona pandemic accelerated a lot of studies about aerosol dispersion and different aerosol-generating tasks ranging in intensity from sneezing to breathing. Both measurements and numerical simulations were used to understand the behaviour of aerosols. For numerical simulations, Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations were used;...

Students are exposed to various environmental stimuli at their home study places. However, different students have different preferences in terms of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) aspects and psychosocial aspects of these places. A previous study on students' preferences of their study places resulted in nine profiles based on their IEQ and...

Indoor environmental quality is still described with quantitative dose-related indicators, expressed in number and/or ranges of numbers for each of the factors (indoor air, lighting, acoustics, and thermal aspects). Interactions of stressors and effects at and between human and environment level are ignored. Individual differences in needs and...

The corona pandemic underlined a lack of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and<br/>ventilation. Consequently, to limit the spread of the virus, researchers explored several indicators that, through different approaches, assess IAQ and ventilation performance in indoor spaces. This paper gives an overview of those indicators and assessment methods used to...

People are staying indoors for most of their time (on average 90%), where they are exposed to different environmental stimuli (e.g., noise, temperature) that are related to the indoor environmental quality (IEQ) factors (Bluyssen, 2020). Students in higher education spend substantial time at their study places (at home or educational buildings)...

Research has shown that, even though the indoor environmental conditions seem to comply with current guidelines and those conditions seem ‘comfortable’ enough, staying indoors is not good for our health. Reasons for this discrepancy might be the fact that these guidelines are based on single-dose response relationships to prevent negative...

The acoustic quality of educational spaces has an important impact on well-being and occupant performance. This study investigates noise perception and hearing ability among primary students in traditional learning environments (TLE) and flexible learning environments (FLE). A survey was conducted in Santiago de Chile, involving 21 teachers and...

This is an account that should be heard of an important struggle: the struggle of a large group of experts who came together at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to warn the world about the risk of airborne transmission and the consequences of ignoring it. We alerted the World Health Organization about the potential significance of the...

Introduction: Our aim was to gain insight into the effect of COVID-19 measures on SARS-CoV-2 incidence in secondary schools and the association with classroom CO <sub>2</sub> concentration and airborne contamination. Methods: Between October 2020—June 2021, 18 schools weekly reported SARS-CoV-2 incidence and completed surveys on school...

Indoor air quality (IAQ) plays an important role in human health and well-being as people spend most of their time indoors. Among building materials, carpets covering high surface areas and having dense fibres have the potential to impact perceived IAQ. To explore the impact of carpets on perceived IAQ, it was studied whether low-emitting...

Recent studies have shown that both personal and building-related factors may affect the health and comfort of occupants in their homes. It is also known that people differ in their needs and can therefore respond differently to these stressors. Therefore, based on the large database from the survey conducted yearly from 2016 to 2020 among the...

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of ventilation for ensuring occupants’ health was widely stressed, especially for densely occupied places such as schools (Ding et al, 2022). Correspondingly, new protocols of ventilation were implemented in school buildings among many countries and regions. In the Netherlands, school classrooms were...

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) and ventilation, which researchers have been warning about for years. During the pandemic, researchers studied several indicators using different approaches to assess IAQ and diverse ventilation systems in indoor spaces. To provide an overview of these indicators and...
