    was developed. It consists of a concrete slatted floor under which is an 11 kW fan, 2 under-floor air ducts with total 1.3 m2 cross-section and steel grids on each duct, giving an air outlet area of 15.3 m2 at 63 mm slat spacings, and exhaust air outlets. Operation of the system and ventilation experiments are described. In comparisons with a system using 2 ducts and a 15 kW fan, this system offered 30% lower energy consumption, increased stack height (5 m compared with 4 m) and reduction of max. peak load from 180 to 132 kW per store.
