AbstractThis paper presents a numerical approach for simulating volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from dry materials. The approach has been used to examine the VOC emissions from two particleboards. The emission study for the particleboards shows that a fairly good agreement of VOC concentrations between the model prediction and experimental data can be achieved by pre-calculating the partition coefficient (Kma) and material age (AGE) and adjusting the diffusion coefficient (Dm) and initial concentration (C0). Further, the study shows that Kma only affects short-term emissions while Dm influences both the short- and long-term emissions.
