Abstract : From the respiratory volume of various animals we have determined the amount of virus-containing material which they will take up on contact with a virus-containing aerosol in the aerosol chamber. The losses in the aerosol cloud due to settling out of the particles according to Stokes' law have been determined and it has been shown that for the various types of coagulation Stokes settling is the fundamental factor. As the results show, with the IBK-1 chamber, a stable finely dispersed aerosol can be produced. (Author)
