A new concept of ‘accessibility’ is presented that considers the influence of supply air or of a contaminant inside ventilated spaces within a finite period of time. Two new indices—accessibility of supply air (ASA) and accessibility of contaminant source (ACS)—are defined to evaluate the relative effect of spread of supply air or contaminant in a given period of time. The two new indices in a two-dimensional ventilated room have been numerically analysed to demonstrate the characteristics of… Expand
