Abstract

A novel, full-scale, whole-field, non-intrusive diagnostic technique and associated instrumentation have been developed and applied to study full-scale room air flows. The system is designed to study the local field quantities in the occupied zones (microclimate), ventilation effectiveness, energy efficiency, and air pollutant transport in the indoor environment. The system can be applied to evaluate the fate and transport of consumer aerosol products in typical commercial and residential settings. The technique and instrumentation have been applied successfully to study localized air flow patterns and to determine the whole-field velocity distribution of indoor air flow. The results of this research can be used to develop pollution prevention strategies to reduce the occupant exposure level and guide industries to develop more efficacious aerosol consumer products.
