The report gives results of field tests aimed at increasing the reliability of equations used to predict emission factors for open fugitive emission sources at iron and steel plants. The accuracy of previously developed equations is limited by the restricted number of actual test measurements used as their basis. Results of 18 emission tests of traffic-entrained dust from unpaved roads show that the previously developed equation for this source predicts measured emission factors within a mean prediction error of 16% of the mean measured value. An adjustment factor for the number of vehicle wheels should reduce the prediction error. Limited tests of chemical dust suppressants for unpaved roads indicate a high initial control efficiency which decays with passage of vehicles. Six tests of traffic on paved roads indicate that the previous equation consistently underpredicts emissions for paved roads in industrial plants. This is probably due to the effect of unpaved areas adjacent to the paved surfaces. Five tests of storage pile stacking show that the previous equation for continuous drop operations can be improved by adding a correction factor for drop distance. Twelve tests of wind erosion emissions, using a portable wind tunnel, yielded sufficient information on the dynamics of wind erosion from storage piles and bare ground areas.
