Abstract:

CONTAM94 is an easily used, public domain airflow and contaminant migration analysis program combining algorithms for modeling airflow and contaminant dispersal in multizone buildings. It employs a simplified graphic description of the building for both data entry and the presentation of simulation results. It runs on commonly available 486DX class PC compatible computers with VGA graphics and MS-DOS. It can handle buildings containing a large number of zones.
