CONTAM Results Export Tool

Web Application 


The CONTAM Results Exporter Tool enables the user to export all or selected CONTAM results for the entire simulation or a subset of the simulation period.


The CONTAM Results Export Tool has five export options.

  1. Export .sim file to text files: Export results to tab-delimited text files. The results that can be exported include but are not limited to: airflows, pressure differences, and contaminant concentrations.
  2. Compute temporal/spatial averages of concentrations: Export concentration results that are averaged over a user-specified period of time or zones (or the entire building).
  3. Process exposure results: Export exposure results by contaminant or by occupant.
  4. Export infiltration to EnergyPlus: whole building air change rates: Export whole building infiltration rates to EnergyPlus.
    See Documentation below for details.
  5. Export infiltration to EnergyPlus: zone-specific air change rates: Export zone-specific infiltration rates to EnergyPlus.
    See Documentation below for details.
