9780071402453: Aerobiological Engineering Handbook: Airborne Disease and Control Technologies (McGraw Hill Handbooks)

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.

  • Design solutions for control of gases and odors
  • Recommended technologies and methods to combat biological terrorist weapons in HVAC systems
  • Diagnosis of air quality problems
  • Complete airborne pathogen database for the identification of infection risk

From the Back Cover:

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 <1i>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

About the Author:

Wladyslaw Jan Kowalski, Researcher with the Indoor Environment Center (IEC) of Pennsylvania State University, holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Architectural Engineering.

He has extensive experience in the designing and installing of air cleaning systems in commercial buildings and health care facilities. Consulted on numerous projects involving biodefense retrofits, mold remediation, nosocomial infection control, and residential air cleaning systems. He has assisted various equipment manufacturers with the design and testing of UVGI, filtration, ozone, ionization, and other air disinfection systems and provided support for various private, commercial, and government projects internationally. Dr. Kowalski has contributed chapters to the HVAC Handbook (McGraw-Hill) and the HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics (ASHRAE). His first book, "Immune Building Systems Technology," has received wide acclaim internationally and has become a major source book in the field of bioterrorism defense technology. Dr. Kowalski consults on air cleaning construction and retrofit projects through Immune Building Systems, Inc. (IBSI) of New York, and speaks at international conferences on issues related to disease control and biodefense. He is currently chairman of the Air Treatment Group of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) with whom he is developing a series of standards and guidelines for air treatment systems in collaboration with ASHRAE, ARI, and other professional societies.
