Explains how mixed floor-mounted air mixing systems using high-induction outlets can produce similar, if not identical, IAQ for displacement systems, 4) Booth W, Describes how on-site monitoring can help prove that the quality of air actually provided in a building comes up to the design requirements, 5) Josserand O, States that just as air conditioning enable control to be exerted over the temperature in buildings, so new technology is increasing the scope for controlling IAQ.
