The dynamic behavior of charged aerosols: III. Simultaneous charging and coagulation


A general sectional method for computation of the size-charge distribution during simultaneous charging and coagulation of ions and particles is developed. The time evolution of the ion (unipolar or bipolar) concentration and of the aerosol size-charge distribution is simulated under particle-particle coagulation, electrostatic dispersion, ion recombination, and ion and particle production and loss. Numerical examples illustrating the sectional method are presented.
