This is a "scratch" page used to record various measurements and test results obtained for the Corsi-Rosenthal Cube.
Room sizing / CADR figure
CFM measurements of a 4-sized cube configuration were taken here:
As per conversation with David Elfstrom, these figures were using a Lasko Power Plus fan, which puts out ~20% more flow than typical fan.
In David Elfstrom's own CADR predictions, he uses a figure of ~62% efficacy of the MERV-13 filters (confirmed with him). So this is a figure based on 0.3um particles expected lower bound performance with the MERV-13 filters.
COVID-carrying particles are likely larger than 0.3um (most penetrating particle size), so this is a lower bound figure. I am not sure if the exact size distribution of COVID-carrying particles is known. We know 80% of them are are "less than 5um."
Using John Semmelhack's CFM measurements, we can make a guess at the difference between the cube with 1" filters and the cube with 2" filters. His cube was constructed with 2" MERV-13 filters.
We assume a conservative figure here. Want to give a lower bound. So this scale multiple looks like \((349/455)\).
\((349/455)*871*0.62*0.80 = 331 CADR\).
