Deposition of Submicron-Size Particles in Ventilation Ducts

One of 442 reports in the series: ORNL (Series) available on this site.

Description

The purpose of this study was to investigate mathematically the concentration decrease due to particle deposition phenomena in highly concentrated monodispersed aerosols (mean particle size less than 1.0 mu) flowing through ventilation ducts. It was found that, from the standpoint of removal, the decrease in concentration due to deposition on duct walls was insignificant; but, when considering contamination on duct walls, the amount deposited, even though small when compared with the amount in the bulk stream, should not be overlooked.
