Abstract

This work presents a coursework design process to study the fugitive dust generation and detection method in South Korean Cities. The work is broadly classified into two parts, namely, designing of a software-based virtual platform to study the fugitive dust generation sites i.e the construction sites in a 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) environment and developing a low-cost dust concentration detection sensor to perform the different laboratory-based test within undergraduate coursework. The work also evaluates the effectiveness of the dustproof nets usually used by the construction industry in preventing fugitive dust. A detailed background check in terms of theoretical and legal rules has been studied. Then detailed simulations are performed and finally, the sensor system is developed to perform field tests.
