This study aims to validate a CFD model (Flovent) for calculation of temperature and particulate concentration in a ventilated room. Measurements were operated in a test room with a heat source and a cigarette source. Good agreement was found with the model for temperatures with a mixed ventilation system in the room as well as with a displacement ventilation system. For particulate concentrations, the model was validated for mixed ventilation and 'borderline validated' with displacement ventilation.
