Abstract

IAQ Simulator offers a new testing tool for building product manufacturers to develop and test materials in multilayer structures. The developed simulator can be incorporated to the "Indoor Climate" classification and CEN when drafting emission measurement standards for structures. The simulator offers also a new tool to study the complicated causal connections of building structure, materials and unexpected exposure to water and microbes, especially during the use of the buildings. The methodology and the simulator system generate new possibilities for advanced research. The use of molecular biological tools connected with IAQ simulator can give new opportunities for estimating the role of microbes and their interactions in indoor air and material related problems.
