CONTAM Library files enable CONTAM Input Data to be shared between CONTAM projects. There are four types of library files currently available here: Airflow elements, Wind pressure coefficient profiles, Filters, and Schedules. To use these library files, download them to your computer and copy them to the desired location. You can access the data in the libraries via ContamW using the CONTAM Library Manager as documented in the CONTAM User Guide.
These libraries are documented in the following NIST report (NISTIR6585.pdf)[198K]
