Aerosol depositon

R A Hoffman, J Billingham
The primary mode of depositon of particles in the respiratory tract in the size range 0.5-10 mum diam (unit density) is sedimentation. The rate of sedimentation is directly proportional to the velocity of settling of the particle. Therefore, the total deposition of particles in the respiratory tract as well as the region of deposition is affected by changes in gravity. Human subjects were exposed to aerosols of 2.02-mum-diam polyvinyltoluene particles at 0, 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0 G. Total deposition was measured at each G level...
