dc.description.abstract This paper focuses on the results of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling of radon concentration distribution in living areas within residences. The COMSOL Multiphysics® 5.3 software package has been employed for solving coupled momentum and species transport problems together with pseudo-reaction term modeling of the radon radioactive decay process. The reliability and verification of the simulation model was tested by comparing with available experimental data. The obtained results show the existence of stagnant zones where the concentration of radon is substantially higher than the average values. The impact of factors such as wind velocity, air tightness, and incoming radon flux were taken into consideration. en_US
