Abstract
A computer simulation program was developed to reproduce manual counting methods and calculate their accuracy in estimating the number of asbestos fibers on a filter surface. A model arrangement of asbestos fibers on a filter was generated for a predetermined number of fibers with lengths and widths according to lognormal distribution and uniformly random placement.
