Description: A mobile test rig to determine the air leakage characteristics of farm buildings was developed, con structed, and tested. This rig consisted of a trailer mounted 1.2 m diameter vane axial fan with a rated capacity of 14 m3/s at a static pressure of 60 Pa and an adjustable duct-to-building adapter. Air flow was measured using 20 Pitot tubes located in the duct. Initial tests on two dairy bams indicated air leakage rates in the order of 5 and 11 air changes per hour at a pressure differential across the building envelopes of 20 Pa.
