Study of Particle Resuspension by Impaction
Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering, Department of Electrical Power Engineering.
2011 (English)MasteroppgaveStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis discusses particle resuspension from surfaces caused by particle impaction. The thesis also focuses on particle transport and different transport mechanisms regarding different particle sizes. The transport mechanisms are important both for deposition and impaction, and thereby resuspension. An introductory to turbulent flows, which is important for particle transportation, is included. A comprehensive talk about particle-surface interface such as adhesion forces and elastic deformation is also given in the thesis. Regarding collisions theories, both qualitative and quantitative experiments and models will be presented, discussed and retested through a parameter study. Three models are selected among those presented, recommended for programming, and further implemented as MATLAB-scripts. These models cover a broad range of possible collisions; vertical, oblique and horizontal. A parameter study reviled the relative importance of different model parameters. The turbulent intensity was among the parameter studied. Parallel to the literature survey and model programming, a test rig was build. The candidate participated in the startup period and did calibration experiments regarding the flow speed and flow rates at different fan speeds. In future studies a comprehensive particle fouling experiment will be carried out on this test rig. Suggestions to future studies are given at the end of the thesis.
