A two dimensional analysis of the evolution of the particle size distribution in particle laden high temperature jet flows including the effects of coagulation and buoyancy Lee, Bang-Won; Choe, Man-Su; Hwang, Jeong-Ho;
A numerical study has been done on the evolution of particle size distribution in particle laden high temperature jet flows undergoing convection, diffusion, thermophoresis and coagulation. The dynamic behavior of these particles have been modelled by approximating the particle size distribution by a lognormal function throughout the process and the moments of the particle size distribution have been used to solve the general dynamic equation. The size distributions of spherical particles in the radial and axial direction have been obtained including the effect of buoyancy. Of particular interests are the variations of geometric mean diameter, number concentration and polydispersity. Results show that buoyancy significantly alters the size distribution in both axial and radial direction. One dimensional analysis for non-spherical particles has also been done and the results have been compared with the existing experimental data.
