    This significant, new ASTM publication provides a valuable insight into the numerous issues and challenges associated with air quality in airliner cabins. It examines 15 peer-reviewed papers, written by professionals known worldwide for scientific investigations of the aircraft cabin environment. Specific attention is give to potential causes of adverse health symptoms and discomfort reported in airliners. These concerns include air pollutants such as aldehyedes, bioaerosols, carbon monoxide, ozone, and VOCs, as well as carbon dioxide, cabin barometric pressure, vibration, temperature, and humidity.

    6 sections cover:

    • Cabin Air Quality Measurements

    • Chemicals, Toxicity, and Effects

    • Standards

    • Modeling and Control of Cabin Air Quality

    • Cabin Air Quality and Emerging Issues/Research

    • Relationships between Cabin Environment Factors and Comfort and Health Responses

    This publication will be of interest to: Aircraft Manufacturers

    • Airline Executives

    • Airline Medical Directors

    • Maintenance Engineers

    • Pilots and Flight Attendants

    • FAA and OSHA Personnel

    • Industrial Hygienists

    • Researchers, including Epidemiologists and Toxicologists
