Fluid flow and aerosol transport in T-shaped 3D structures
- Conference date: 17–22 June 2012
- Location: Potsdam, Germany
The present study focuses on fluid flow and particle transport in T-shaped structures formed by tubes with circular and square cross-section. The performances of optimized structures (i.e., structures designed based on Constructal allometric laws for minimum flow resistance) and not optimized structures were studied. Flow resistance and particle penetration efficiency were studied both for laminar and turbulent flow regimes, and for micrometer and submicrometer particles. Optimized structures have been proven to perform better for fluid flow but they have a similar performance for particle transport.
