"A performance comparison of ordinary and container classrooms in Austria";
Asian Journal of Civil Engineering,
This paper compares the indoor environment of ordinary and container classrooms in a
number of schools in Austria. Temperature, relative humidity, and carbon dioxide
concentration were measured. Moreover, teachers in each school were handed a
questionnaire inquiring about factors such as ventilation practices, air quality, and thermal
comfort in their classrooms. The results of the study suggest a slightly inferior indoor
environmental performance of the container schools as compared to ordinary schools.
