The report discusses the monitoring and collection of data relating to indoor pressures and random concentrations under several test conditions in a large school building in Bartow, Florida. The Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) used an integrated computational software, FSEC 3.0, to stimulate heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system and multizone airflows, indoor pressures, random transport in the soil, and slab and indoor radon levels in the large building. The simulation was validated by measured data. A limited parametric study shows the influence of outdoor airflow, ambient random level, and soil radium content on indoor random levels.
