This paper presents the simulation of concentrations with variations in the start times of indoor PM emission sources, as exact details can be uncertain or vary over population groups, as a result of differences in their activity profiles. Probability density functions are used to generate a distribution of potential start times, predicting the range of possible indoor PM concentrations. This technique captures details on the concentration distribution, in contrast to a single peak concentration, but the consequence of using this is an under-prediction of peak concentrations.
