This report is a result of a master’s thesis project, completed by a group of Building Energy Design students from Aalborg University.
The report consists of three parts analyzing different aspects of the indoor environment.
The first part of the report is investigating moisture production profiles from indoor activities. It is a research based on literature and advanced building simulation models.
In the second part of the report particle concentration in three Danish apartments has been investigated. To achieve this goal equipment had to be designed and assembled. Thus, group teamed up with a couple of Computer Science students who designed a data acquisition system for particle samplers. Measurement campaign lasted for three weeks and enabled the group to comprehensively describe how occupant behavior affects indoor PM 2.5 and PM 10 concentrations and estimate occupant exposure to particulate matter.
The third part of the report investigates the possibility of microplastic particle and fiber presence in the indoor air. Breathing thermal manikin has been used to determine if occupants are exposed to these particles by simulating human respiration. To analyze and process gathered data group received help from University staff who performed FPA-µFTIR-Imaging spectroscopy.
Findings and analysis of these three aspects IAQ is described in the following pages of the report.
