Abstract

The health damage caused by indoor air pollution has become serious nowadays, and studies of solutions are improving in medical and building science respectively. However, to solve this problem fundamentally, comprehensive and quantitative assessments, from generation of pollutants to start of symptoms, are needed. In this study, damage-function of indoor air pollution is calculated with Disability Adjusted Life Year (DALY).It becomes possible to quantitatively assess the health damages from indoor air pollution, and a number of environmental issues can also be assessed at the same time.
