The #1 guide to aerosol science and technology -now better than ever
Since 1982, Aerosol Technology has been the text of choice among students and professionals who need to acquire a thorough working knowledge of modern aerosol theory and applications. Now revised to reflect the considerable advances that have been made over the past seventeen years across a broad spectrum of aerosol-related application areas - from occupational hygiene and biomedical technology to microelectronics and pollution control -this new edition includes:
* A chapter on bioaerosols
* New sections on resuspension, transport losses, respiratory deposition models, and fractal characterization of particles
* Expanded coverage of atmospheric aerosols, including background aerosols and urban aerosols
* A section on the impact of aerosols on global warming and ozone depletion.
Aerosol Technology, Second Edition also features dozens of new, fully worked examples drawn from a wide range of industrial and research settings, plus new chapter-end practice problems to help readers master the material quickly.
New edition of the text introducing the basics of the field, including modern theory and applications. Chapters cover such topics as properties of gases, bioaerosols, uniform particle motion, Brownian motion and diffusion, respiratory deposition models, and sampling and measurement of concentration. Appropriate for professionals, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates. Uses dual units, with SI units primary and cgs units secondary. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
WILLIAM C. HINDS, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at the UCLA School of Public Health. His primary research interest is fundamental and applied research related to aerosols and industrial control of airborne contaminants, including respiratory protection. A Diplomate of the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (comprehensive practice) and a Fellow of the American Industrial Hygiene Association, he has published numerous articles on aerosols.
This book is one of the most comprehensive technical books leading students as well as engineers to the world of aerosol physics. This is a gate to the fantastic world of aerosols. A great fundation can be built upon it.
