||Studies of contaminant dispersion near a body were carried out using a mannequin in a modified wind tunnel capable of simulating a range of indoor velocities and turbulence characteristics; sulfur hexafluoride was used to simulate gaseous contaminants. The results of validation testing for selected experimental components are reported: velocity of flow, mannequin blockage, turbulence intensity, turbulence spectra and measurements of scale, and contaminant profiles. A deceleration zone was noted that extended 50cm upstream from the mannequin, with freestream velocities reduced 50 to 60%, 2.5cm from the chest.
