Abstract:

Although it is intuitive that building and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system parameters play a major role in determining how an agent disperses after an indoor biological attack, how and to what extent those parameters affect the transport of contaminants is not well understood. A better understanding of how building and HVAC parameters affect the transport of an agent will improve the ability to mitigate the effects of a biological attack and aid in determining where resources in building protection are best directed. Therefore, the objective of this project was to theoretically and experimentally evaluate the effects that modifications to HVAC and building design and operation would have on the spread of biological agents (in aerosol form) within a building.
