All abstracts are submitted via www.iaqvec2010.org under “Authors” menu.
- Deadline for abstract submission: January 10, 2010.
- Advance the science and develop innovative technologies in the areas of indoor environmental quality (IEQ), building energy efficiency (BEE) and building protections by conducting leadingedge academic and industrial research.
- Enhance scholarly learning and professional training for graduate and undergraduate students via integration of research and teaching.
- Help relevant industries in product development and innovation by providing objective and unbiased product testing and evaluation services.
BEESL leads the Energy and Indoor Environmental Systems program at Syracuse University to graduate engineers who will be able to make immediate impacts and eventually become leaders in Energy and Indoor Environmental Systems related industries such as:
- Air conditioning and refrigeration equipment manufacturing
- Building energy and environmental system analysis and design
- Energy and indoor environmental quality consulting
- Power generation and distribution
The Energy and Indoor Environmental Systems Program at Syracuse University is actively engaged in teaching, research and outreach. Its vision is to be a leading student-centered teaching and research program that facilitates high quality learning, and is highly responsive to the needs of relevant industries.
Research AreasResearch activities at BEESL are focused on
- Hygrothermal performance of materials for built environmental systems (HT-MBES)
- Coupled Heat, Air, Moisture and Pollutant Simulation (CHAMPS)
- Air Cleaning Technology (ACT)
- Intelligent Built Environmental Systems (i-BES)
- Material emissions and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
BEESL has state-of-the-art research facilities including capabilities to do both experimental and computer simulation analyses from material level to full-scale system performance. They are used for the following, but not limited to studies of:
- Indoor pollutant sources and sinks such as building materials and furnishings, office machines, consumer products, etc.
- Combined air, heat, moisture and contaminant transport through building envelopes. Interactions between indoor, outdoor environments and HVAC systems/components.
- Room air and contaminant distributions in personal/task, displacement, or mixing ventilations.
- Air and contaminant transports in multi-zone buildings and building dynamics.
- Air filtration/purification technologies for gas and particulate contaminants including stand-alone room air cleaners and those installed in HVAC ducts.
- Sensitivity, accuracy and reliability of environmental sensors and control systems.
- Ambient air samplers, industrial hygiene monitors, indoor air quality monitors, thermal comfort monitors and occupational protective equipment and materials.
