The British Standard Code of Practice, and other authoritative guides, recommend minimum rates of ventilation related to the size and use of rooms, and structural means for providing them. But the difficulty of measuring actual ventilation rates suggests that it is seldom done.
This paper reports the effect of adsorptive building materials in reducing formaldehyde inindoor air. Although some studies have reported that adsorptive building materials are effective inreducing concentrations in chamber experiments, there are few studies which are carried out in actual room. In this paper we examine the reduction effect of changing the surface area of the adsorptive material in a room and the most effective arrangement of the material. We confirmed that the reduction effect is not always proportional to the adsorption surface area.
The aim of the study is to validate CFD approaches for the simulation of the dispersion of gases and vapors in an enclosed space at different flow rates, and to show the impact of one important determinant of simulation accuracy.CFD results and measurements were compared, showing a good correspondance for the pollutant concentration when the boundary condition was a profiled velocity inlet and not an uniform velocity inlet.
