EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF AEROSOL DISTRIBUTION AND CONCENTRATION VARIATION THROUGH CURVED DUCTS

ABSTRACT
This paper presents an experimental investigation of an aerosol problem by adopting two methods. One approach utilizes scanning electron microscope to study the realistic aerosol deposition status in a typical duct bend. Through scanning electron microscope images and on-site observation, the aerosols tend to deposit and accumulate more on the outer bend wall and bend outlet wall. The other approach is to design systematic experiments to measure aerosol concentration variation and distribution through 90-degree curved ducts. This experimental method is simple for realistic applications. Measured results show that the average particle volume concentration diverges greatly after flowing through the bend. The loading ability decreases significantly for larger particles at bend outlet under higher Dean number.
