An analytical investigation of the mechanics of deposition affected by gravity, electrostatic charge, and Brownian motion in an effuser from the nozzle inlet to a distance where incompressible effects are still valid has been made and a mathematical model developed for the deposition process. The analysis was restricted to laminar flow of dilute, nonreactive suspensions contained within an incompressible, viscous carrier. The results show that increasing the nozzle angle causes a decrease in deposition rate regardless of the diffusive Peclet number and gravity flow parameter. Furthermore, an increase in gravity field causes an increase in bottom deposition rate and decrease in top deposition rate.
