Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAII, volume 10)


Automotive vehicles and other machines often operate in an atmosphere of increased dustiness. Normally, there are no conditions in which the air is free from dust. The highest dustiness is present on all kinds of building sites, in mines (shaft and strip ones), quarries and gravel pits. Off-road vehicles, tractors and farming machines, as well as military vehicles also operate in the conditions of increased dustiness. Industrial areas are characterised by a great deal of dustiness.
