In recent years, industry has become increasingly interested in modern aerosol measurement methods, not only to protect the health of their workers but also to augment productivity and thereby gain competitive advantage. Aerosol Measurement: Principles, Techniques, and Applications, Second Edition offers scientists and practitioners the fundamental principles used in deciding which aerosol properties to measure and how to interpret the results. Divided into three parts, the material reviews the physical understanding of aerosols, covers specific instrumental techniques, and explains applications in fields ranging from health care to mining and upper-atmosphere research. Leading experts contribute to the review of such areas as direct-reading techniques, bioaerosol sampling, indoor air evaluations, industrial aerosol processing, and measurement in semiconductor clean rooms. Plus, all the chapters in this latest edition have been updated and some have been rewritten by new authors. Two new chapters have been added: one on historical aspects of aerosol measurements and the other on real-time single particle analysis.

Untersuchungen zum Einfluss von Rauchgas Aerosolen in M ll und Biomasse Verbrennungsanlagen auf die Hochtemperatur Korrosion der berhitzer

Author: Christian Frank Deuerling
Publisher: Logos Verlag Berlin GmbH
ISBN: 9783832522773
Release Date: 2009
Genre:

Ein Probenahme- und Messsystem wurde entwickelt, das die chemische und physikalische Untersuchung aggressiver und heisser Rauchgas-Aerosole sowie die Generierung linebreak geschlossener Partikel-Massenbilanzen in Verbrennungskes seln ermoglicht. Die Probenahmesonde verdunnt und kuhlt das Aerosol uber ein keramisches, poroses Rohr mit Luft auf 300 ^oC. Die Messungen an zwei Mull- (MVA) und einer Biomasse- (BMA) Verbrennungsanlage ergaben mehrere, potenzielle Korrosionsursachen der Uberhitzer: Die MVA mit geringer Korrosion wies eine geringere Partikelzahl und gleichzeitig weniger klebrige und aggressive Partikel auf. Die Sulfatierung der Partikel in der Flugphase konnte uberdies um 50 % weiter fortschreiten als in der MVA mit hoher Korrosionsrate. Die Partikel mit Durchmessern zwischen 1 muund 20 mu, die jeweils im Minimum einer bimodalen Grossenverteilung lagen, zeigten das hochste korrosive Potenzial.

Keine Probleme mit Inversen Problemen

Author: Andreas Rieder
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783322802347
Release Date: 2013-03-07
Genre: Computers

Inverse Probleme treten in der heutigen Hochtechnologie häufig auf. Immer wenn man von einer beobachteten (gemessenen) WIRKUNG auf deren URSACHE schließen möchte, liegt ein inverses Problem vor. So wird in der Computer-Tomographie die Abminderung von Röntgenstrahlen gemessen beim Durchgang durch ein Objekt (z.B. menschlicher Körper). Die Ursache der Abminderung ist die Dichte des Objekts. Ein anderes Beispiel stellt die Ultraschall-Tomographie dar: Hier wird die Streuung von Schallwellen an einem Objekt beobachtet, hervorgerufen durch die Form des Objekts, auf die man schließen möchte. Aus mathematischer Sicht bestehen inverse Probleme darin, Operatorgleichungen zu lösen. Das vorliegende Lehrbuch führt umfassend ein in die mathematischen Grundlagen zur stabilen Lösung inverser Probleme, zielt dabei aber auch auf konkrete Anwendungen ab.

Sampling for Biological Agents in the Environment

Author: Peter Emanuel
Publisher: Amer Society for Microbiology
ISBN: STANFORD:36105131686029
Release Date: 2008
Genre: History

After September 11 and the anthrax attacks of 2001, the real danger of a large–scale biological terrorist attack was realized. This invaluable volume brings together the latest information on the environmental sampling element of the response to a biological attack. Resulting from a national conference of first responders, scientists, and industry representatives, Sampling for Biological Agents in the Environment presents best practices that will help standardize procedures and technology to properly sample for biological threat agents. The sampling issues, techniques, and equipment are explained for professionals involved in sampling and testing of hazardous materials. Additionally, this volume will help facilitate cooperation and effective communication between various federal, state, and local entities that often have different procedures and methodologies when responding to weapons of mass destruction incidents. This volume clearly articulates best practices, common mistakes, basic principles, and future developments in comprehensible and concise language that can be easily understood by a non–technical audience but appreciated by the scientific community. By using real–world incidents, this volume thoroughly explains how to establish a containment area, structure a sampling operation, and acquire samples of the biological threat agent. The authors of individual chapters span the range of expertise across the biological sampling community. From government policy experts and first responders to hazmat personnel and leading scientists, this publication unites expertise from across the sampling community to combine this disparate knowledge into a clear, accessible resource. This volume is the first of its kind and presents novel ideas to address the diverse needs within the biological sampling field. Key Features Focuses on all aspects of acquiring, packaging, and transporting a representative biological sample from the environment Uses real–world examples and experiences to show lessons learned and best practices Emphasizes key topics through the use of graphics, photographs, and real–world examples Provides a much–needed resource of best practices and references Presents detailed information in clear and concise language that can be appreciated by a technical audience and understood by non–technical readers Standardizes procedures, responses, and techniques by covering multiple sampling types (air, water, and surfaces) Incorporates contributions written by experts across the sampling community Consolidates all the critical information in realistic examples for professionals Includes text boxes, chapter appendixes, a summary of biological agents, and a glossary
