Title Industrial ventilation - a review and update
Bibliographic information Mar. 1982, Vol.43, No.3, p.175-184. 128 ref.
Abstract This review of the technological progress being made in the industrial ventilation field by different investigators throughout the world covers: natural ventilation; local exhaust ventilation; specialised ventilation techniques (dilution, air jets and curtains, recirculation of filtered air, exhaust of open surface tanks, tracers for ventilation studies); mine ventilation. Typical applications of the new technology to solving ventilation problems are presented, and important areas requiring further research and development work are identified.
