Ventilation and ventilation system have a direct effect on the thermal environment and
contaminant distribution in an animal building. The objectives of this research are to investigate
the thermal environment and the contaminant transport in a mechanically ventilated swine
building and to study the correlation of contaminant transport and airflow in the building. Two
important thermal environment parameters, temperature and velocity, and the dust mass
concentration were measured at multiple points in a typical pig building.
