The fully revised and restructured two-volume 2nd edition of the Industrial Ventilation Design Guidebook develops a systematic approach to the engineering design of industrial ventilation systems and provides engineers guidance on how to implement this state-of-the-art ventilation technology on a global basis.Volume 1: Fundamentals features the latest research technology in the broad field of ventilation for contaminant control including extensive updates of the foundational chapters from the previous edition.With major contributions by experts from Asia, Europe and North America in the global industrial ventilation field, this new edition is a valuable reference for consulting engineers working in the design of air pollution and sustainability for their industrial clients (processing and manufacturing), as well as mechanical, process and plant engineers looking for design methodologies and advice on sensors and control algorithms for specific industrial operations so they can meet challenging targets in the low carbon economy.

Key Features

  • Presents practical designs for different types of industrial systems including descriptions and new designs for ducted systems
  • Discusses the basic processes of air and containment movements such as jets, plumes, and boundary flows inside ventilated spaces
  • Introduces the new concept of target levels in the systematic design methodology such as assessing target levels for key parameters of industrial air technology and the hierarchy of different target levels
  • Provides future directions and opportunities in the industrial design field
