Abstract
The effect of dust on aerodynamic drag of spheres and cylinders was calculated by using a mathematical model developed for this purpose. The results were compared to experiments previously done by other workers. The calculated and experimental results agree favourably, showing that the mathematical model is satisfactory. Impaction efficiencies and drag coefficients due to dust alone were then obtained using the model for a wide range of the inertia parameter and the results are presented graphically. The model can also be used for calculating velocity distributions and points of impact for a stream of airborne particles flowing over a sphere or cylinder.
