Title Centreline velocity characteristics of local exhaust ventilation hoods
Bibliographic information Aug. 1982, Vol.43, No.8, p.626-627. Illus. 4 ref.
Abstract Studies in front of plain and flanged local exhaust ventilation hoods show that design equations based on the work of Dallavalle and Silverman, which form the basis of today's design methods, are not valid in general. Recent experimental data were compared with a new formula and gave very close agreement.
