Problem 1. Indoor particles (worth 100 points). Consider an office building with a volume of 500 m3 and a recirculation air exchange rate of 4 h-1, a ventilation air exchange rate of 1 h-1, and an infiltration air exchange rate of 0.5 h-1. The outdoor particle distribution is the same as the Urban distribution in Riley et al. (2002). This question assumes that the office has either a MERV 6 or MERV 15 filter. The sizeresolved removal efficiencies () for these filters, as well as values for particle penetration (p) and particle loss to surfaces (), are located in the Excel file named: AE_550_IAQ_F2012_Homework_3.xls. Using a steady-state expression similar to Equation 2 in Riley et al. (2002), provide a plot of the outdoor and indoor size (number) and mass distributions as well as values of the outdoor and indoor PM0.1 and PM1 number concentrations (#/cm3) and outdoor and indoor PM2.5 mass concentrations (g/m3) for the cases below. Provide distributions for each case on separate plots with the size and mass distributions for one case on one plot [make small plots and put multiple plots on the same page] and the concentration values from all cases in one table.) Undergraduate students do (a) through (b): (a) Recirculation, ventilation, and infiltration with a MERV 6 filter. (b) Recirculation, ventilation, and infiltration with a MERV 15 filter. Graduate students do (a) through (f) (next four worth 50 points total): (c) Recirculation, ventilation, and infiltration with a MERV 6 filter, and Cooking emissions. (d) Recirculation, ventilation, and infiltration with a MERV 6 filter, and Smoking emissions. (e) Recirculation, ventilation, and infiltration with a MERV 15 filter, and Cooking emissions. (f) Recirculation, ventilation, and infiltration with a MERV 15 filter, and Smoking emissions. For emission values, Cooking has an emission rate of 1.151014 #/h (GMD = 0.06 m, GSD = 1.94) and Smoking has an emission rate of 79.2 mg/h (GMD = 0.2 m, GSD = 2.10).
