||Predicting the ultraviolet radiation distribution in a room with multilouvered germicidal fixtures
||July-Aug. 2001, Vol.62, No.4, p.434-445. Illus. 15 ref.
||A relatively inexpensive method to reduce transmission of airborne infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis, consists in irradiating the upper part of a room with ultraviolet (UV) radiation. To obtain a protection of workers in the lower part of a room from radiation, multilouvered UV germicidal fixtures, producing a horizontal beam, are used. In this article, a model is developed to predict the UV fluence rate at any location in the upper room for such fixtures and also total UV power emitted by the same.
