Abstract

The effects of air pollution found in indoors and prevention of exposure to hazardous compounds are an important issue in the interest of public health. In this research, Computer Simulated Person (CSP) that integrated thermo-regulation and numerical respiratory tract model is developed for applying comprehensive assessment of health risk caused by indoor environmental quality problem. Especially, this paper (part 2) reports the internal integration procedure of virtual manikin and numerical respiratory tract by way of convective heat and moisture transfer analyses for improvement of thermo- regulation model. Furthermore respiratory exposure to contaminated air under different contaminant generation was studied using CSP and unsteady CFD technique.
