Modern day swine production buildings used for commercial pork production in the Midwestern region (severe winters and moderately hot summers) of the US are typically ventilated using negative pressure mechanical ventilation systems (VSs). The combinations of fans and inlets (diffusers) are typically used for ventilating the buildings during winter and spring time. The design of ventilation systems for swine finishing rooms (there may be one or more rooms in a swine barn, Jadhav et al., 2015… Expand
