Flash-Based Car Exposure Simulation

This is the first interactive flash-based simulation at SimSmoke.Org. Please "play" with the car exposure simulation below, which features integrated instructions. When you are done using the simulation, please take a survey.

[Ed. note: The embedded flash does not seem to work with some versions of Internet Explorer. If you do not see an embedded flash animation below, please click on this link. You will need the Adobe Flash Player to see this simulation.]

Bar and Restaurant Model

This simulation is of smokers in an enclosed (indoor) bar or restaurant over a 2-hour period where there are designated smoking and nonsmoking rooms. The two rooms are well-mixed and connected by a doorway or open passage.

You may select the dimensions of each room (Length x Width x Height in feet), the overall rate of outdoor air exchange (h-1), which is apportioned to each room according to their volumes, the air flow rate between zones (m3 h-1), which is currently the same in each direction, and the total number of cigarettes smoked in the smoking room of the venue over the 2-hour period.

Multiple smokers can be active simultaneously. Each cigarette lasts 10 minutes. Cigarette starting times are assigned randomly. A given cigarette has an equal chance of being lit during any minute of the 2-hour period.

Two-Zone House Model

This simulation is of one or two smokers in a two-zone house over a 12-hour period where each zone is well-mixed.

You may select the volume of each zone (m3), the overall rate of outdoor air exchange (h-1), which is apportioned to each zone according to their volumes, the air flow rate between zones (m3 h-1), which is currently the same in each direction, and the total number of cigarettes smoked in each zone.

The cigarettes are assumed to be smoked at even intervals.

Car Exposure Demo

This simulation is of a smoker in a car over a 1-hour period. You may select the volume of the car (m3) and the rate of outdoor air exchange (h-1), which depends on the window and ventilation positions in the car.
