Abstract : A 4-inch-diameter, electrically driven, spinning disk and a 2-inch-diameter, air-driven, spinning disk aerosol generator have been designed, fabricated, and tested. The 4-inch-diameter assembly has been used to generate dyed polystyrene particles having a nominal diamter of 6 micrometers. The 2-inch-diameter assembly has generated 19.59-micrometers-diameter di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate droplets for use in wind tunnel studies of particle impaction phenomena. (Author)
