Abstract

The need to control environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) in restaurants and bars has increased recently due to new regulations. In this work laboratory studies were made to investigate the possibilities of ventilation systems and interior design to control ETS in restaurants. The dispersion of ETS could be minimized and the non-smokers exposure reduced by separating the smokers and non-smokers and supplying most of the air into the non-smoking section and exhausting most of it from the smoking section. Further reduction in the non-smokers exposure was achieved by placing a local exhaust with sufficient flow rate in the opening between the smokin and non-smoking sections.
