This work focuses on two types of antiterrorist emergency ventilation systems: one to defend the indoor environment against chemical and biological agents (CBAs), and one to supply anesthetic gas to incapacitate terrorists holding hostages in public buildings. The book begins by explaining how these systems work, then reviews the theory of contaminant source identification and contaminant dispersion, presenting the computational fluid dynamics method, an analytical formula for contaminant distribution, and an algorithm for identifying the position and intensity of contaminant source. The book also covers the cellular automata model and the spatial-grid evacuation model for modeling the evacuation process, and presents two indexes for evaluating the exposure risk of a contaminant. Final chapters cover decision-making related to emergency ventilation in terrorist attacks and hostage situations. A list of terms, formulas, and abbreviations is included.
