606 pages, parution le 14/11/2002


Your complete one-stop guide to building ventilation and air treatment systems design!! Immune Building Control Systems takes a comprehensive approach to the protection of buildings against biological pathogens. Immune Building Control Systems is a how-to-guide, an all-in-one reference for designing, retrofitting, and building state-of-the art ventilation and air treatment systems that can be integrated and controlled by a detection system. This guide is the first all in one guide to tackle this new and growing threat.

The book includes all essential background information on chemical/biological pathogens and on the mechanical systems used to control indoor air quality and protect those that inhabit them. Packed with schematics, diagrams and equations this Immune Building Controls Systems provides the engineer with all the essential tools for the design or the retrofit of systems for treating or purging indoor air of biological pathogens. Specific systems for use in homes, schools, hospitals, and laboratories are described in sufficient detail. The accompanying CD contains a modeling program that will allow the user to test designs before they get off the drawing board as well as assist HAVC Engineers take a look that their systems and retrofit their systems to meet the new threat of biological pathogens.
