This study set out to investigate the potential of installing a new common roof turbine ventilator on to an existing bathroom ventilation system which serves 14 bathrooms in the first dormitory block of Leader University in Taiwan, and evaluate the overall ventilation performance of this new combination. Field measurements of airflow in the ventilation ducts and low-speed wind tunnel experiments for this turbine ventilator were carried out. The results showed that the combination of the roof turbine ventilator and bathroom ventilation were successful in achieving sufficient air change rate in bathrooms, and this ventilation design alternative is now proposed as a method of improving the indoor air environment in bathrooms.
