Abstract

We present results of cubicle-interaction experiments in which trace amounts of CO2 are introduced in one cubicle and the intake fraction is measured in the neighboring cubicle. For these experiments, heated manikins are placed in the cubicles to mimic humans with associated thermal plumes. Through these experiments, we attempt to quantify the effect of temperature differences between adjacent cubicles on the IAQ coupling between cubicles.
