tube_eff {AeroSampleR} R Documentation

## Tube efficiency

### Description

Computation is consistent with the approach described in Hogue, Mark; Thompson, Martha; Farfan, Eduardo; Hadlock, Dennis, (2014), "Hand Calculations for Transport of Radioactive Aerosols through Sampling Systems" Health Phys 106, 5, S78-S87, <doi:10.1097/HP.0000000000000092>, with the exception that the diffusion deposition mechanism is included.

### Usage

tube_eff(df, params, L_cm, angle_to_horiz, elnum)


### Arguments

 df is the particle data set (data frame) established with the 'particle_dist' function params is the parameter data set for parameters that are not particle size-dependent L_cm tube length, cm angle_to_horiz angle to horizontal in degrees elnum element number to provide unique column names

### Details

In order to run this function, first produce a particle distribution with the 'particle_dist' function, then produce a parameter set with the 'set_params' function. Both of these results must be stored as per examples described in the help set with each.

### Value

data frame containing original particle distribution with added data for this element

### Examples

# Example output is a sample of the full particle data set.

# laminar flow (Reynolds number < 2100)

df <- particle_dist() #  distribution
params <- set_params_1("D_tube" = 2.54, "Q_lpm" = 20,
"T_C" = 25, "P_kPa" = 101.325) #example system parameters
df <- set_params_2(df, params) #particle size-dependent parameters
df <- probe_eff(df, params, orient = 'h') #probe orientation - horizontal
df <- tube_eff(df, params, L_cm = 100,
angle_to_horiz = 90, elnum = 2)
(df[sort(sample(1:1000, 10)), ])
# turbulent flow (Reynolds number > 4000)

df <- particle_dist() #  distribution
params <- set_params_1("D_tube" = 2.54, "Q_lpm" = 100,
"T_C" = 25, "P_kPa" = 101.325) #example system parameters
df <- set_params_2(df, params) #particle size-dependent parameters
df <- probe_eff(df, params, orient = 'h') #probe orientation - horizontal
df <- tube_eff(df, params, L_cm = 100,
angle_to_horiz = 90, elnum = 2)
(df[sort(sample(1:1000, 10)), ])

# midrange flow (Reynolds number > 2100 and < 4000)

df <- particle_dist() #  distribution
params <- set_params_1("D_tube" = 2.54, "Q_lpm" = 60,
"T_C" = 25, "P_kPa" = 101.325) #example system parameters
df <- set_params_2(df, params) #particle size-dependent parameters
df <- probe_eff(df, params, orient = 'h') #probe orientation - horizontal
df <- tube_eff(df, params, L_cm = 100,
angle_to_horiz = 90, elnum = 2)
(df[sort(sample(1:1000, 10)), ])
