- The modeling of the indoor concentration distribution produced by sources and sinks of pollutants is complicated by nonuniform mixing in a building or large room. Two common approaches to predicting the concentration distribution are to treat either the indoor volume as containing multiple microenvironments with uniform mixing within each, or to treat the entire volume as a single uniformly mixed compartment with an empirical mixing factor m that is introduced to correct for nonuniform mixing. We review the literature on the use of m and show that this empirical approach violates a basic principle of mass conservation.
