FORUM: This SyracuseCoE Research & Technology Forum will highlight the findings from a joint research project between Syracuse University and Honeywell.

The objectives of the study included 1) to develop a comprehensive test method for evaluating the effectiveness of various air cleaning technologies for various indoor pollutants including volatile organic compounds, particulates, and viruses, 2) to develop advanced control methods and algorithms for HVAC system controls, 3) to evaluate the impact of intelligent air cleaning and ventilation control strategies on IAQ, occupant satisfaction, comfort, and performance.

MODERATORS: Professors Jianshun “Jensen” Zhang, Bing Dong and Dacheng Ren.

TOUR AND NETWORKING: There will be networking reception and optional tour after the forum of the Built Environment Science and Technology Laboratory (BEST Lab), led by Professor Bing Dong. This is a new laboratory at SyracuseCoE specializing in IAQ, occupant behavior and intelligent control research and development.
