Air Change Rates of Motor Vehicles and In-Vehicle Pollutant Concentrations from Secondhand Smoke

Document Type: 

Journal Article

Description: 

This article describes a series of tracer gas experiments designed to measure vehicle air exchange rates for a variety of speeds, window positions, and ventilator functions. Experiments were also conducted to measure real-time particles from secondhand smoke in cars across various conditions.
