Deposition Assessment

Now, ready to assess the deposition fraction of the particles from different sources? Provide particle loading and its size distribution, the deposition calculator based on the formula shown in sections 5 and 6 can compute the total deposition and regional deposition for you. Before the web calculator shows you the answer, have an educated guess of where the given particles will deposit based on what you have learned from previous sections. Also think about why (i.e. what is the dominant mechanism).

The default value is taken from cigarette smoke. You may also want to try the particles from the outlet of the control device module (e.g. cyclone) or other types of aerosols.
