EFFECTS OF AMBIENT CONDITIONS ON MULTI-CAPILLARY VENTILATION RATE

ABSTRACT
As a major physical parameter for the tobacco industry, the ventilation rate of cigarette should be measured reliably. Theoretical and numerical investigation on ef-fects of ambient conditions (e. g., cumulative flux of ozone and additional pressure drop) on the ventilation rate was carried out. It was found that the standards exhibited a non-linear airflow component, which explains why additional pressure drop has an effect on the calibrated value, and had low sensitivity to cumulative flux of ozone.
