|Abstract:||Particle collection efficiencies of water droplets were calculated by considering thermophoresis, diffusiophoresis, inertial impaction, wake capture, and effects of drop deformation. The computations were carried out for a droplet temperature of 10 °C with saturated gas temperatures of 20, 35, 65, and 95 °C. The temperature, water vapor, and velocity distributions around the collector were determined by direct numerical integration of the appropriate governing partial differential equations using a convenient orthogonal grid generation technique. The investigation shows the following: deposition of fine particles can be significantly enhanced by phoretic forces; flux deposition of fine particles can be related to Reynolds number through the proportionality, E(flux) ∞ Re-0.78; the flux deposition of fine particles on the rear of the collector is significant for low Reynolds numbers; wake capture is relatively insignificant; drop deformation can improve the collection of larger particles by inertial impaction and of smaller particles as a result of increased hydrodynamic effects on such particles.|
