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
