LARGE BUILDING HVAC SIMULATION
Gu, L., M. Swami, AND V. Vasanth. LARGE BUILDING HVAC SIMULATION. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/R-96/116 (NTIS PB97-104715), 1996.
The report discusses the monitoring and collection of data relating to indoor pressures and radon 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 simulate heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system and multizone airflows, indoor pressures, radon 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 radon level, and soil radium content on indoor radon levels.
