Ventilation for Control of the Work Environment 2nd Edition, ISBN-13: 978-0471095323
[PDF eBook eTextbook]
Publisher: Wiley-Interscience; 2 edition (June 11, 2004)
The second edition of Ventilation Control of the Work Environment incorporates changes in the field of industrial hygiene since the first edition was published in 1982. Integrating feedback from students and professionals, the new edition includes problems sets for each chapter and updated information on the modeling of exhaust ventilation systems, and thus assures the continuation of the book’s role as the primary industry textbook.
This revised text includes a large amount of material on HVAC systems, and has been updated to reflect the changes in the Ventilation Manual published by ACGIH. It uses both English and metric units, and each chapter concludes with a problem set.
Detailed coverage of both theoretical and practical aspects of industrial ventilation systems–newly updated in this Second Edition
Designed to be used with the ACGIH Industrial Ventilation manual, Ventilation for Control of the Work Environment explains the rationale of the material contained in the manual while demonstrating both the theoretical and practical aspects of the subject. The design of local exhaust ventilation systems is illustrated by examples taken from the authors’ industrial experience. In addition, end-of-chapter problem sets are now presented to reinforce the content of appropriate chapters. Both English and metric units are used in this new edition, and new ventilation practices and research advances are noted throughout this major revision.
Topics covered include:
* Overview of industrial exhaust ventilation and its impact
* Fluid mechanics
* Methods and instrumentation for measuring airflow
* Hood design, selection, and performance
* The design of local exhaust ventilation systems
* Fan design and performance
* Air-cleaning devices
* Computational fluid dynamics
* Dealing with the reentry of exhausted air
“…clearly a definitive first class publication on industrial ventilation…if your goal is to expand your knowledge of ventilation this a great place to start.” (Chemical Health and Safety, January-February 2005)
