Extraction and Detection of Asbestos fibres in soil
Theme: Measurement techniques
Start date: Cohort 1: 2019
Supervisors: Dr Chris Stopford (Hertfordshire) and Prof Daniel McCluskey (Hertfordshire)
Asbestos fibres are released from soil during construction & remediation works. The aim of this project is to develop a technique for automatic extraction fibres into an aerosol, then apply a range of real-time optical measurement techniques to positively identify the presence of asbestos.
