Abstract

Protecting the occupants of buildings from the ill effects of chemical, biological, or radiological agents is an important part of emergency response to accidental or intentional release events. A procedure to balance these competing requirements using a multizone modeling approach is outlined, the results are demonstrated for a prototype building, and the sensitivity of the results to the variables is explored. Given sufficient additional information, the procedure identifies zones that are suited for use as collective protection areas within a building.
