The dynamic behavior of charged aerosols: II. Numerical solution by the sectional method


A general sectional method for computation of the size-charge distribution of coagulating charged particles is developed. The physical phenomena taken into account are coagulation, electrostatic dispersion, particle production, and removal. The sectional equations are based on a general moment conservation that includes as particular cases the principles of volume and charge conservation.
