Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Feb2008, Vol. 80 Issue 2, p38
The article discusses the natural air movement in an industrial plant which matches to the movement of a boy. It describes as moving, with no definite pattern and hard to stop. The author provides explanations and examples that will serve as a ground for engineers involved with air movements in industrial plants. The use of the given information and continued study of air movement in industry can provide sufficient knowledge of how air flows.
