Flow dynamics in waste water pipes

Start date: Apr 1st, 2017
Finish date: May 1st, 2018

The purpose of the project is to gain experience of the importance of where the ventilation of the waste water pipe is positioned. Is it e.g. positioned at the top, in the middle or at the bottom, and which mechanisms and conditions govern the intrusion and the leaking from the sewer/waste water pipes to the indoor air? In other words, what kind of dynamic causes a spread from waste water pipes and water traps to the indoor air, and what is the effect of ventilating the waste water pipe?
