Abstract

A significant first step of any quantitative program for health impact assessment of air pollutants requires the accurate determination and control of trace gas or aerosol concentrations in a realistic test environment. Of interest here are the experimentally validated computer simulations of turbulent air and carbon monoxide transport in a Rochester-style human exposure chamber. The goal was to determine for the given system after design modifications a flow field which provides a near-uniform pollutant concentration, here carbon monoxide, in the vicinity of a subject's face for safe and
