Impacts of ventilation: studies on “environmental tobacco smoke”

Andrew Geens, D.G. Snelson

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A number of legislative bodies in Europe have already made or are currently considering making policy decisions on the issue of smoking in public places. Policy alternatives have been discussed in Town and Country Planning (2004 and 2008). Scientific evidence relating to this debate has been reported in a diverse range of publications such as the British Medical Journal, Indoor Air and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers Journal. On inspection much of this reporting concludes negatively on the performance of ventilation systems. In this paper a critical review is undertaken of three “Environmental tobacco smoke” study papers, to supplement the overview provided by the authors in their paper in the International Journal of Innovative Computing, Information and Control (IJICIC) in 2007.
