NIOSH 1963 Sep:15 pages
Review of workshop relating to physical and chemical properties of dust in air, and the behavior of dust in the human respiratory system. Topics include significant properties of dust clouds and particles, determination of quantities of dust in the air, composition of dust particles, particle size evaluations, and interpretation of data. Considerations are given to lack of knowledge of the biological systems and its characteristics for defining specifically the requirements for sampling devices, and to reliability of sampling and counting techniques. A bibliography lists some 115 titles in the following areas: biological activity of dusts, pathology, X-rays, dust in lungs, chemical analysis, test clouds, elutriation, selective sampling, instrumentation, microscopy of dust, statistics of sampling and analysis of survey data, National Coal Board pneumoconiosis field research, and miscellaneous.
