This project involves the design and integration of a carbon dioxide plume generation system, a plume detection system, and a data acquisitions system for indoor plume experiments. The design of these systems is aided by 3D simulations of carbon dioxide plumes from a stationary source and a known release rate. The plume generation system is designed using SolidWorks and consists of a stand with a pressurized tank, a regulator, a solenoid valve, a mass flow controller and a nozzle. The plume detection system is designed with SolidWorks and consists of carbon dioxide sensors and wind speed sensors placed on a horizontal arm that can be re-positioned vertically on a stand. The systems are controlled using LabVIEW implemented on a data acquisition computer stand.
