The data and methodologies needed to eliminate building air quality problems due to microbial hazards. The most comprehensive guide available on the subject, Aerobiological Engineering Handbook encompasses everything needed to design and build systems that control airborne pathogens and reduce respiratory hazards in indoor environments. Packed with over 500 topic-clarifying schematics, diagrams, tables, and charts, this hands-on guide will help readers tackle the most difficult airborne problems and build superior ventilation systems or remediate existing ones in commercial, residential, and governmental buildings; healthcare facilities; stadiums and malls; schools; laboratories; aircraft; and animal facilities.

Examines sick building syndrome and building-related illness resulting from known, suspected, and emerging pathogens and allergens. Includes complete databases for airborne and animal pathogens and bio-weapons to help you quickly identify infection risks. Fully describes the technologies for controlling airborne hazards: ventilation systems; filtration; ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGT); carbon adsorption; photocatalytic oxidation (PCO); airborne ozone disinfection; ionization; pulsed light and pulsed electric fields; ultrasonication; and more. Explains detection and monitoring methods for air sampling.

Puts at your fingertips specific design data and tools including methods for sizing filters, UV systems, and other air cleaning technologies. Offers detailed information on avoiding and remediating mold and microbial growth problems and managing odors and gases. Provides methods and technologies for dealing with airborne diseases such as influenza, tuberculosis, and SARS virus, including all "immune building" technologies that may be used to protect against bioterrorism weapons.

INSIDE Aerobiological Engineering Handbook. Airborne Disease Control Technologies. Detection and Remediation. Applications Appendices : Airborne Pathogens and Allergens, Toxins, MVOCs, and Evaluation Forms for Surface Sampling, Settle Plate Sampling, and Air Sampling.

Solve any building air quality problem

A complete reference for the design of air filtration systems and HVAC systems used in homes, schools, hospitals, laboratories, or animal facilities, this book offers complete descriptions of each of the major technologies currently used for air disinfection. Each subject, chemical or microbial, is treated in sufficient detail to allow the design of these components to solve specific building air quality problems.
