Abstract

The objective of this paper is to present an analytical and numerical model for the fluid streamlines and particle trajectories inside a Particle Nozzle Collector. This work is part of a main research project that is be- ing developed by the Technology Center of the Federal University of Alagoas (Brazil). The final objective of this research is the design and the construction of a solid particle Nozzle Collector. To this end, it is necessary to simulate mathematically the pathlines of those particles collected from the atmosphere, so that one can relate the collector's ef- ficiency taking into account the various physical and geometrical pa- rameters, such as diameter, velocity, inertia, concentration, etc. This first part of the research deals with streamlines of the fluid flow, where a met
