Research Interests

We are attempting to simulate a leak in a nanoparticle production process. This allows us to observe changes in particle characteristics as the particles travel away from the leak. Particle size distribution (number and surface area) are monitored as well as particle morphology as the aerosol moves. An appropriate worker exposure will be derived from this worst case exposure leak scenario to possibly be used in exploring worker protection schemes, exposure studies, as well as particle dynamics. This leak is simulated experimentally in our test chamber, as well as numerically using FLUENT for higher size resolution.
