Research Topic: 

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.

Research Topic: 

Indoor Air Quality

Aims: 

This project aims to characterize indoor concentrations of pollutants through measurement and modeling. Indoor environments include detached homes, apartments, offices, bars, restaurants, etc. Specific efforts focus on monitoring, source characterization, ventilation, particle deposition, and indoor-outdoor pollutant transport.
