Evolution and role of the stationary particles during agglomeration of a fog in an acoustic chamber
This paper presents a detailed analysis of particle size of a liquid aerosol enduring acoustic agglomeration. It is shown that the final size distribution exhibits a bimodal shape. A peak, corresponding to inertial particles having a relaxation time greater than the wave period, is formed from small particles in the original aerosol. It is demonstrated that the global agglomeration rate, K, scales linearly with the number of inertial particles which means that orthokinetic interaction takes place. An extrapolation of the experimental data to the limit of zero inertial particle concentration shows that K takes a finite value.
