A newly constructed, uninhabited high-rise building has been measured for its indoor and outdoor radon concentrations at similar locations on each of the 18 floor levels. Grab sampling technique has been used so that many locations can be measured within short period of time to minimize the variations due to temperature, pressure and humidity. Air exchange rates inside rooms were obtained by tracer gas method. Standard concrete samples were manufactured in laboratory to simulate the concrete… CONTINUE READING
