All of the material contained in the Fugitive Dust Handbook is available for downloading in Word and PDF format from this website, either in its entirety or by individual section. A file in Excel format containing the generic sample control measure cost-effectiveness calculation included in the handbook is available for downloading from this website. Each Excel file contains several worksheets: a worksheet containing the color codes used in the sample calculation worksheet, a table listing control efficiencies for different demonstrated control measures, one or more "look-up" tables for the various default values used in the emission factor equation(s), and the sample calculation worksheet which the user can download and then vary the assumptions contained in the generic sample calculation (e.g., control efficiency and costs associated with a specific control measure) in a series of "what-if" scenarios for evaluating the cost-effectiveness of different control measures.
To search the handbook for specific terms or topics, download and open the entire handbook and use the search functions of either Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Chapter 5 of the WRAP Fugitive Dust Handbook addressing fugitive dust emissions from vehicles traveling on paved roads should reflect that the PM2.5/PM10 ratio of 0.15 applies to the k-factors and not to the emission factors. The Handbook user is directed to the revised sample cost-effectiveness calculations presented in the EXCEL worksheet for paved roads.
