STUDY OF THE BEHAVIOR OF INDOOR RADON USING OF COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD) SOFTWARE

STUDY OF THE BEHAVIOR OF INDOOR RADON USING OF COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD) SOFTWARE Neetika Chauhan* and R. P. Chauhan Department of Physics, National Institute of Technology, Kurukshetra, Haryana [Corresponding author E-mail-*: neetika.nit@gmail.com] Received: 28-07-2017 Accepted: 12-09-2017 Abstract:  Radon (Rn222), the decay product of radium (Ra226), in uranium decay series (U238), which is also radioactive in nature and further produce daughter elements (Po218, Pb214, Bi214 and Po214). Inhalation of radon progenies cause respiratory related issues. So the measurements of the indoor radon levels Read More …
