Case Studies

CONTAM and other multizone modeling software is often used in the field of building ventilation and IAQ research. However, the use of multizone modeling in more practical applications is increasing. Along with building research, multizone modeling can be applied to areas of building design and operation. More specifically, applications include the design and performance analysis of ventilation, IAQ, and smoke management systems.

The following are brief presentations of case studies of the application of CONTAM, including projects performed by both researchers and designers.
