Abstract : This report presents the stochastic nature of the mobility of aerosol particles in non-orienting fields of force. A dynamic model for the interaction between particles' translation and Brownian rotation was assumed and a Monte Carlo method applied to compute the distribution of particles' (verticle) trajectories. The distribution was calculated for several particle shapes, various geometric dimensions, various total times of motion, and various initial orientations. From the calculations it was seen that the aerodynamic diameter is actually a statistical parameter, which should be taken into account. On the experimental side, the principal translational coefficients of cylindrical glass fibers was determined with the aid of a special apparatus and technique. Fibers' dimensions were found according to a previously developed photogrammetric method, employing a scanning electron microscope.
