This course provides a basic knowledge of an emerging area – Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in buildings. Learners will realize the importance of maintaining proper IAQ.
Characteristics associated with indoor air contaminants (IAC) are demonstrated, such as
• Particulate matters (PM2.5, PM10)
• Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
• Bio-aerosols, and more
Safe exposure levels, resulting health effects, measurement techniques, mitigate and control measures of these IAC are discussed.
Other important areas related to IAQ such as building ventilation systems, indoor flow characteristics, sick building syndrome, and thermal comfort are also covered in this course.
