A general mathematical model is presented for predicting the concentration and fate of particulate matter in indoor air. Using a multicomponent sectional representation, the model accounts for the effects of ventilation, filtration, deposition onto surfaces, direct emission, and coagulation. Model predictions are compared with the evolution over time of the measured aerosol size distribution following combustion of a cigarette in a single room with a low air-exchange rate.
