Written by experts, Indoor Air Quality Engineering offers practical strategies to construct, test, modify, and renovate industrial structures and processes to minimize and inhibit contaminant formation, distribution, and accumulation. The authors analyze the chemical and physical phenomena affecting contaminant generation to optimize system function and design, improve human health and safety, and reduce odors, fumes, particles, gases, and toxins within a variety of interior environments. The book includes applications in Microsoft Excel®, Mathcad®, and Fluent® for analysis of contaminant concentration in various flow fields and air pollution control devices.

The respiratory system; design criteria; estimation of pollutant emission rates; general ventilation and the well-mixed model; present local ventilation practice; ideal flow; motion of particles; removing particles from a gas stream; application of CFD to indoor air quality.
