Full Description

The HUD manufactured home construction and safety standards (Part 3280, 1994) contain requirements intended to provide adequate levels of outdoor air ventilation in manufactured homes. In the implementation of these standards, questions have arisen regarding the impact and significance of some of these requirements. In order to obtain some insight into these issues, the multizone airflow and indoor air quality program CONTAM96 was used to simulate a double-wide unit under several different ventilation scenarios. Annual simulations were performed in three cities to assess ventilation rates and energy consumption associated with these scenarios. The results of these simulations are presented and discussed, and recommendations are made for changes to the HUD standards and for future research.
