Coupled model for simulation of indoor airflow and pollutant transport

Publication Type

Report

Abstract

Understanding airflow in buildings is essential for improving energy efficiency, controlling airborne pollutants, and maintaining occupant comfort. Recent research on whole-building airflow simulation has turned toward protecting occupants from threats of chemical or biological agents. Sample applications include helping design systems to reduce exposure, and selecting optimal sensor locations.
