Transport Processes in Aerodisperse Systems: Transitional Growth of Non-Spherical Particles and Mobility of Ions

  • Alexey B. Nadykto


This paper consists of three different problems related to the transport processes in the aerodisperse systems. Transitional growth rates for non-spherical particles, derived by the modified boundary sphere method (see e.g. Fuchs (1964), Seinfeld and Pandis (1998)), are presented in the second section. The third section discusses a transitional condensational growth of a multicomponent non-spherical particle and the fourth section considers a mobility of ions.
