As you probably know, in2/ft2 refers to "for every square foot of area, there is one square inch of leakage area." For example, in ASHRAE fundamentals, sliding windows are given a value of 0.057 in2/ft2. So a 141 ft2 sliding window would have an effective leakage area of 8.04 in2.
MarketManager uses the LBNL model as defined in ASHRAE Fundamentals 1997 [25.22] to find the infiltration airflow rate in CFM :
AL is the leakage area in square feet
CS is the stack coefficient
D T is the average indoor-outdoor temperature difference for time interval of calculation
CW is the wind coefficient
V is the ave wind speed
