Conference Paper
Full-text available
The exposure to particulate matter (PM) pollution has been associated with respiratory and cardiovascular disease. In the indoor environment, both indoor and outdoor sources contribute to PM levels. Indoor air quality in educational buildings is of great importance since children and students spend a large part of their time in classrooms. This wor...
Chapter
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are considered to be major air pollutants with a strong negative influence on human health. Many of them are toxic with high carcinogenic potential. Children and school staff spend a significant portion of daytime at schools, mostly indoors. Therefore, the hypothesis can be made that air quality significantly...

Sustainable development indicators mainly provide information that can link the observed energy system with sustainable development. This paper considers building energy indicators in order to provide monitoring and measurement of energy performance of buildings. The results of measurement which are considered were obtained in school buildings in S...
Article
Previous studies have shown that poorly ventilated classrooms can have negative impact on the health of children and school staff. In most cases, schools in Serbia are ventilated naturally. Considering their high occupancy, classroom air quality test determines the level of air pollution, after which it is possible to implement corrective measures....
Conference Paper
Windows have an important influence on energy demand for heating and cooling of buildings. This study presents the measured parameters (window heat flux, indoor and outdoor window surface temperature as well as indoor and outdoor air temperature) required for window U-value calculation. The measurements were carried out in-situ for double glazed wi...
Article
Full-text available
Mass concentrations of particulate matter (PM) fractions were measured in educational buildings in the city of Niš, Serbia. Two sampling campaigns were conducted in winter periods. The first campaign was in the period from 21 February to 15 April 2010 at the Faculty of Occupational Safety (FOS) and the second campaign was from 20 March to 4 April 2...

Monitoring of particulate matter (PM) mass concentrations in indoor air is important for human health risk assessments, since most of the individuals in developed countries spend the majority of their time indoors. The mass concentrations of particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5 fractions) were measured in several naturally ventilated offices and hall...
Article
Full-text available
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is very important for children health and well-being, since children are particularly vulnerable and sensitive on presence of air pollutants. This study was performed in two naturally ventilated schools located in the same municipality. First school is located in urban area, at residential – industrial site, while the other...
Article
Full-text available
This study investigated seasonal variation of PAHs and their partition between gas and particulate-bounded phases in indoor and outdoor air in 4 schools in Serbia located at different locations. The sampling campaigns were conducted during one workweek at each school successively. Campaigns were conducted in schools during heating and non-heating s...

Mass concentrations of particulate matter (PM) fractions were measured in educational buildings in the city of Niš, Republic of Serbia. Two sampling campaigns were conducted in winter periods. The first campaign was in the period from 21 February to 15 April 2010 at the Faculty of Occupational Safety (FOS) and the second campaign was from 20 March...
Article

Paper presents comparative analysis of residential indoor air pollutant concentration change over future specified time horizon, implementing building physical and thermal retrofit measures, thus creating pollution mitigation scenarios for existing Belgrade and Nis housing stock followed by greenhouse gas emission reduction scenarios up to 2050. Re...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The central concern of indoor air quality (IAQ) analysis is the prediction of airborne contaminant dispersal in buildings. Airborne contaminants disperse throughout buildings in a complex manner that depends on many parameters: the nature of air movements (in-to, out-of and within the building system), the influence of the heating and natural venti...
Conference Paper
Existing housing stock models relevant to human health and their changes that would meet specified greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction strategies for 2020, 2030 and 2050 for representative Serbian case-study cities Belgrade and Niš have been performed. By combining different types of software tools we have managed to generate archetype sample models of...
Conference Paper
The main goal of this study was to investigate the mass concentrations and chemical composition of PM10 in a residential environment in the town of Bor, Serbia. For the first time, simultaneous indoor and outdoor measurements of PM10 were conducted by the use of the European standard gravimetric samplers. Measurements, in duration of 7 days, were c...
Article
In this paper, a PV/Wind integrated hybrid power energy system is analyzed using the dynamical simulation method. The market for the distributed power generation based on renewable energy is increasing, particularly for the standalone mini-grid applications. The main design components of PV/Wind hybrid system are the PV panels and the wind turbine....
