Title

Geometric design of a mass transfer sensor for indoor environments using computational fluid dynamics

Abstract

"Air movement and mixing can control the transport of surface-reactive pollutants from bulk air to surfaces. To further understand pollutant transport, the efficacy of measuring mass-transfer coefficients (MTC) utilizing sublimation or evaporation from a coated microbalance sensor was evaluated. For practical utility, this sensor must project from the wall surface. Therefore, the broad goal of this research is to recommend a design for the sensor enclosure that minimizes the influence of enclosure shape on the measurement itself"--Abstract, leaf iii.
