    S1. STANDARDS (LEVEL 1)

    Preamble and linking text to a sequence of tables that will list the number designation of the standard, its title, a contextual

    description, schematic of test method (if useful) and external link to webpage of the full standard. Section to cover liquid and

    gas based standards in relation to:

    - filter media

    - test facilities and testing (+ link to section M1)

    - challenge materials

    - compressed air

    and include standards produced by various organisations, e.g. international (ISO, CEN, EUROVENT), British (BSI, BW),

    German (DIN, VDI), French (AFNOR), Italian (UNI), American (ANSI, ASTM, ASHRAE, AIHA, DOE, NRC, INDA, NIOSH,

    NIST, SAE, AWWA)- must be global

    T1. TOPIC BASICS (LEVEL 1)

    Aimed at the general user who will often have limited knowledge of the area in question. Each item to (as appropriate)

    include:

    description, sufficient so that basics can be understood and ‘simple’ calculations performed

    governing equation(s) with nomenclature defined, sufficient to highlight the link(s) between critical variables but kept to

    the minimum required to develop knowledge and understanding

    tables of important parameters

    indication of where and how topic is applied (e.g. named equipment, processes…), applications

    at least one schematic, photo(s) as beneficial

    worked example calculations
