This small-scale project aims to characterise the ventilation and air tightness status of selected dwellings. Air exchange rate measurements were carried out at selected periods over a week-long period, during which PM concentrations were monitored in the same dwellings. The data generated captures some of the variability in airflow patterns in naturally ventilated dwellings due to variations in meteorological conditions, and the data can then be used to parameterise computational models for PM exposure.
