Airborne Particle Dynamics in the Built Environment


Feb 16, 2020: The paper "Xia, T., Bian, Y., Shi, S., Zhang, L., Chen, C.* (2020). Influence of nanofiber window screens on indoor PM2.5 of outdoor origin and ventilation rate: an experimental and modeling study" has been accepted by Building Simulation. Congratulations to Tongling! 

Feb 13, 2020: Our laboratory has been renamed as "Built Environment & Energy Laboratory". The research directions have been updated. Now our research work has been divided into "Airborne Particle Dynamics in the Built Environment" and "Energy and Comfort in the Built Environment".  

Feb 08, 2020: The paper "Yu, X., Chen, C.* A simulation study for comparing the cooling performance of different daytime radiative cooling materials" has been accepted by Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells. Congratulations to Xinxian! 

Feb 04, 2020: The paper "Xia, T., Chen, C.* Toward understanding the evolution of incense particles on nanofiber filter media: its influence on PM2.5 removal efficiency and pressure drop" has been accepted by Building and Environment. Congratulations to Tongling!   

Feb 02, 2020: Prof. Chun Chen attended the 2020 American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Winter Conference at Orlando, FL, USA, and gave a talk entitled "Experimental measurements and large eddy simulation of particle deposition distribution around aircraft cabin supply air nozzles" in Seminar 17.
