Practical Treatment Of Particle Plumes
Abstract
A description is given of a practical approach for calculating emission from a source having cylindrical symmetry and containing both absorbing gases (not obeying Beer's law in general) and absorbing and scattering particles of arbitrary size distributions. Two levels of sophistication are described: (1) a twoflux solution which is obtained by direct path integration and (2) a sixflux solution which requires a prior solution of a reducedsize equation for an isotropic source term. A generalization of standard random gaseous band models is provided to include scattering by use of empirical forms.
