The editors express their appreciation to the many international authors and reviewers who contributed to the Design Guidebook. It is clearly the volunteer efforts of these dedicated individuals that have made the publication of this first edition of the Industrial Ventilation Design Guidebook a reality. We have enjoyed working with this truly outstanding team of scientists and researchers who have been committed to our vision to produce an international handbook of the highest quality in the field of industrial ventilation.
Special thanks are due to the patience and determination of the contributors who tirelessly prepared drafts and redrafts, attended meetings and more meetings, and reviewed proofs, more proofs, and then the final proofs. It has been a pleasure to work with all members of the professional team at Academic Press toward the common goal of publishing this book on schedule.
The editors acknowledge the significant contributions by Esko Vir — tanen of TEKES during all stages of this project. Also, we would like to acknowledge the exceptional work and long hours by Kalevi Pontinen at the Helsinki University of Technology, who has been the overall coordinator for the communications between the editors, contributors, and the publishing team.
Two organizations that have supplied the fundamental building blocks and supporting organizations for this vision of publishing the first edition of the Design Guidebook are the Helsinki University of Technology and COST. Special thanks are due to these organizations. A brief introduction to these two organizations is presented below.
