Prepared on 12/09/09 Syllabus ENV 4121/6126 Air Pollution Control Design, Fall 2009 Instructor: Dr. Chang-Yu Wu ([email protected]) Office Hour Teaching Assistant : Ms. Myung-Heui Woo (BLK 412; [email protected]) and Danielle Hall (BLK 405; [email protected]), Office hour: MW noon-2 pm for Ms. Hall and 2-4 pm for Ms. Woo) Prerequisite : ENV 4101 Elements of Air Pollution Professional component : 3 credits of Engineering Design Textbook : Air Pollution Control: A Design Approach, 3 rd Ed , by C. David Cooper and F. C. Alley, Waveland Press, Inc. ISBN 1-57766-218-0. Class notes are available at the course's website: Reference : Fundamentals of Air Quality Systems: Design of Air Pollution Control Devices , by Kenneth E. Noll, American Academy of Environmental Engineers. ISBN 1-883767-25-3. Course Description : Principles of particulate and gaseous emission control; design and operation of particulate and gas control equipment for stationary and mobile sources to meet federal emission standards Course Objectives: By the end of the course, the student will be able to do the following: 1. To explain and calculate the statistics of a given aerosol size distribution and properties of gas (pressure, solubility and ideal gas law). 2. To determine the movement of aerosols by a given transport mechanism (inertial movement, diffusion and electrical migration) and decide the dominant collection mechanisms in a given aerosol system 3. To determine the major collection mechanism for a given gas compound (absorption, adsorption, chemical reaction, combustion, catalytic reaction) 4. To explain the strategies for NOx and SO 2 removal and the mechanisms employed 5. To calculate the collection efficiency of a given pollution control system and evaluate various parameters that affect the collection efficiency and cost 6. To select and design the most appropriate air pollution control system for a given particulate or gaseous emission scenario 7. To explain and compare different methods for controlling emissions from mobile sources 8. To explain air pollution control techniques to the professional society and general public Calculation of Course Grade : UG/G G 1. Homework 20% 36% 2. Quiz 20% 24% 3. 2 Midterm Exams: 36% 4.

It is theoretically possible for everyone in the class to get an A (or an F ). Your performance depends only on how you do, not on how others in the class do. It is therefore in your best interest to work with your classmates in every legal way possible.
