Annotation -
Fundamentals of air quality assessment and evaluation of the impact of various sources of the air pollutants are the main goals. Description of basic methods for determination of criteria air pollutants are the second main part including general rules of their monitoring and flow rate measurement in ducts.
Last update: Pátková Vlasta (17.01.2018)
Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

analyse the samples of the ambient, indoor and workplace air

analyse the samples of waste gases

measure the flowrate of the waste gases throughout the ducts

express the gaseous mixtures composition and mass flow of the pollutants into the ambient air
