Indoor Air Quality Engineering

Engineers are increasingly faced with indoor air quality issues, particularly in the design of ventilation and filtration systems and airborne contaminant removal. Because this specialty has only recently gained momentum, resources have been limited to scattered research papers on this topic, until now.Indoor Air Quality Engineering covers a wide range of indoor air quality engineering principles and applications, providing guidelines for identifying and analyzing indoor air quality problems as well as designing a system to mitigate these problems. Structured into three sections - properties and behavior of airborne pollutants, measurement and sampling efficiency, and air quality enhancement technologies - this book uses real-life examples, design problems, and solutions to illustrate engineering principles and function as a practical tool for individual study. Specific topics of interest include: particle mechanics, gas kinetics, diffusion and airborne transportation, impaction, gravitational settling, and isokinetic and anisokinetic sampling, and filtration, aerodynamic air cleaning, electrostatic precipitation, wet scrubbing, adsorption, and ventilation effectiveness.Including more than 200 problems and a separate solutions manual for instructors, professors and students in engineering, environmental sciences, occupational health, and industrial hygiene concerned with indoor air quality control will find Indoor Air Quality Engineering provides effective methods, technologies, and principles not traditionally covered in other texts.
