Another New IEST Journal article now available for viewing!

“CFD Modeling and Modification of Cleanroom Design to Achieve ISO Class 6 Performance,” by Richard H. Morrison and Bradley K Hodges, has just been posted in the Journal VIP Articles section of our website. This paper focuses on the design and operation of an ISO Class 6 cleanroom at the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory Microfabrication Lab, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The initial design criteria are discussed, along with installation of the tools and the non-compliance of ISO Class 6 particle counts. Based on these results, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling software was employed to study the airflow in the room and modify the airflow to be compliant with ISO Class 6 standards.

This paper joins “Reverberant Chamber Enhancement,” by Daniel Hayes, which was posted in our VIP section in February. Journal VIP articles are accessible only by IEST members. Not a member? Click here to join today! To learn more about Journal VIP Access, click here.
