The distribution of aerosol particles downstream in a turbulent fluid jet
Abstract
A mathematical model has been developed to predict the downstream distribution of particles in a fluid jet. The particles were initially assumed to be evenly dispersed over a crosssection of the circular jet, near the source of the jet, and, with computeraided methods, the coordinates of the particles at a specified distance downstream were determined. The computer program was also built in such a manner that the paths of specific particles, from their initial upstream position to their final position downstream, could be completely followed. Some graphical results of these paths are presented for various particle sizes.
