The report describes a proposed residential radon resistant construction feature selection system. The features consist of engineered barriers to reduce radon entry and accumulation indoors. The effectiveness of different radon control features was estimated from new laboratory measurements, analyses of new and previous house studies, and mathematical model simulation.
