Coagulation of Smoke Aerosol in a Buoyant Plume.

Published

Author(s)

Howard R. Baum, George W. Mulholland

Abstract

The mechanism of particulate coagulation in a turbulent plume is studied by combining the Morton-Taylor-Turner theory of turbulent byouant plums with the present authors' earlier analysis of coagulation in a homogeneous system. The conservation of fluid mass, particulate matter, momentum, and energy leads to a set of differential equations for horizontal averages of hydrodynamic quantities.
