The aims of the research were to: (a) develop laboratory models relevant to the study of aerosol sampling in industrial hygiene; (b) conduct experiments to evaluate basic aerosol sampling performance indices and the role of physical factors such as sampler size and shape, orientation, windspeed and sampling flowrate; (c)relate the results to existing theories and develop improved models for application by users and designers of practical aerosol samplers; and (d) propose physically-based guidelines for the development of new samplers meeting the new particle size-selective, health-related criteria.
