Description: 

A mass balance model is developed for describing pollutants generated by smoking activity and it is tested in a controlled chamber and with a real smoker in a car.

Center for Energy and Environment: Air Flow in Multifamily Buildings

Description: 

A study of multifamily buildings that produced valuable data on inter-unit air flows. From the website: "This project included in-depth owner interviews, a survey of a large sample of renters, legal research and measurements of the movement of PFTs and SHS tracers between units in apartment buildings before and after air sealing and ventilation treatments. The project produced some of the most extensive multiple fan measurements of inter-apartment air leakage and multiple tracer gas measurements of inter-apartment air transfer. It also developed a new metric of 'effective contaminant transfer' which is used to define the magnitude of the transfer of a contaminant source to the monitored location."

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory - Indoor Environment Department

Description: 

The Indoor Environment Department (IED) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL) in Berkeley, CA (USA) is a world class research group in indoor air pollution, pollutant dynamics, pollutant dispersion, ventilation, and air flow modeling. One of the lab's main goals is "...understanding human exposures to environmental pollutants found in indoor and outdoor air." Many of the IED's publications are available for download

Indoor Air Quality Project

Please visit the [[Indoor Air Quality|IAQ Summary Page]] for a list of the aims, investigators, and materials associated with the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) hosted project.

The IAQ project hosted here investigates a wide variety of factors that impact the concentrations of air pollution that can occur in typical indoor environments. These factors include building construction, mass emission rates of different sources, ventilation rates, particle deposition rates, chemical reaction rates (including surface interaction), and indoor-outdoor particle penetration rates.
