Abstract

A first of its kind study to create a process for better understanding of the health impacts of aircraft generated particulate matter when doing airport impact studies using the IRCP model for particulate deposition in the human respiratory tract. With the affects of fuel type and engine operating condition along with atmospheric conditions have on the deposition of particulates in the human respiratory tract.

Biography

Brian Catron is pursuing a degree in Aerospace Engineering. Shortly after starting school at Missouri S&T, Brian got involved with the Center of Excellence for Aerospace Particulate Matter Reduction Research to get some experience in the aerospace industry and get some hands on experience with various propulsion systems.
