Indoor Air Pollution

We have studied several cases of indoor pollution, both acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term). Our studies have covered apartments, public places, and indoor working environments. Depending upon the complexity of the case, we have used different indoor models, from simple box model calculations, to complex use of Computational Fluid Dynamics software.

IBM San Jose Toxic Case

Plaintiffs argued that they had suffered work related injuries due to their workplace exposures to chemicals at IBM’s disk drive manufacturing facility in San Jose. To support their allegations, Plaintiffs’ experts used an advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model to simulate air flow and chemical concentrations. [Read More]
