AbstractResults of measurements of the room air flow properties in an office space environment (4.74 m x 4.87 m x 2.87 m) with and without partitions (acoustical screens) are presented. The measurements included air flow pattern, air speed, and turbulence intensity. The profiles of the mean speed and the turbulence kinetic energy at the supply air opening are also presented. The data show the effect of using acoustical screens (with various heights and a gap between the floor and the bottom of the screen) onthe air flow pattern and the air flow properties within the room. These data are intended for use in the evaluation of the existing numerical and scale models, and to aid in furthering the understanding of the behaviour of room ventilation airflows.
