CASE STUDIES ON AIR SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS FOR INTERCITY BUSES

A common problem with intercity buses in late fall and early spring is the build-up of fog on the interior of the driver's windshield, making it difficult to use the side mirrors. In order to develop a strategy to improve passenger compartment noise reduction and air quality, a testing program was developed to evaluate the climatic control system. This report presents the results of tests using a Prevost Marathon XL Intercity Coach. Two types of washable filters and two types of disposable filters were tested, with two of the four filters electrostatically augmented.
