AbstractThis paper presents a brief overview of a three-year project on material emissions and indoor air quality modelling. It highlights the research plan and sample results. Major deliverables included a database consisting of volatile organic compound (VOC) emission characteristics of 48 commonly used buildingmaterials, two mass-transfer-based models for predicting emission rates of total volatile organic compound (TVOC) and individual VOCs, and a single-zone model for use with the database for predicting concentrations of individual VOCs in rooms. Also presented, are the field validation results for the single-zone model.
