Abstract

We explore the feasibility and applicability of the Eulerian approach in the mathematical modeling of aerosol dynamics including droplet nucleation, condensation, drift, diffusion and deposition. Both the methodology as well as a number of illustrating applications are contained, establishing the accuracy of the Eulerian aerosol model. Results are presented of aerosol formation inside a turbulent mixing-tee, aerosol aggregation inside an aerosol sampler and size dependent aerosol deposition inside a realistic cast of the human upper airways. Through these applications, as well as via a rigorous validation of the presented models and methods against experimental data, this thesis demonstrates the relevance of the Eulerian approach for accurately and efficiently modeling aerosol dynamics.
