About this book

​This volume presents selected papers presented during the First Asian Conference on Indoor Environmental Quality (ACIEQ). The contents cover themes of indoor air quality monitoring and modeling; the influence of  confounding factors like thermal comfort parameters, such as temperature and relative humidity with respect to different building types, e.g., residential, commercial, institutional; ventilation characteristics, lighting and acoustics.  It also focuses on people's  performance, productivity, and behavior  with respect to their exposure to  various indoor air pollutants and parameters influencing the overall indoor environmental quality. This volume is primarily aimed at researchers working in environmental science and engineering, building architecture and design, HVAC and ventilation, public health, and  epidemiology. The contents of this volume will also be useful to policy makers working on occupational health and building codes.

Reviews

“Given the enormous challenges of air improvement in megacities such as Delhi, these findings are immediately applicable at a time that indoor air pollutants of all kinds are meriting increased attention.” (John T. Pierce, Doody's Book Reviews, April 16, 2021)
