Abstract
The report documents analyses of Phase 2 data from the Florida Radon Research Program's (FRRP's) New House Evaluation Project (NHEP) that were performed using a lumped-parameter model. Based on experience from Phase 1 of the NHEP, Phase 2 monitoring was aimed at better isolating the effects of specified radon-resistant construction features. The FSEC data included 15 houses, and the UF data included 14 houses. The lumped-parameter analyses focused primarily on empirically characterizing the radon resistance of the house/soil interface for different foundation designs. The analyses were also aimed at comparing the effectiveness of active and passive radon protection features.
