Title A proposed model for converging flow junction pressure calculations
Bibliographic information Sep. 1992, Vol.53, No.9, p.556-565. Illus. 19 ref.
Abstract The pressure calculation methodology described in the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists' Industrial Ventilation - A manual of recommended practice (for a recent edition, see CIS 89-1308) lacks an empirical basis for calculations involving pressures near junction fittings. Changes to the methodology are proposed to incorporate recent empirical findings concerning both upstream and downstream pressures.
