Abstract : Further research is required to establish the reasons why submicron fibers capture a high proportion of particles in the fibrous filtration of aerosols. The authors do not consider that the answer lies in the suggestion that it might be due to the Brownian motion (BM) of the fibers. Presented is research on proving this to be the case. (Author)
