Literature Review

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Fire book series (BRIEFSFIRE)


Aerodynamic forces acting on a dust layer can dislodge particles or clumps of particles from the layer and set them into motion. The entrainment of dust layers occurs in various modes or their combinations. Powders demonstrating negligible cohesion1 tend to be removed as individual particles. More cohesive powders are removed as groups of particles (agglomerates), and sometimes, depending on layer and surface properties, appreciable portions of the layer can be lifted as a whole.
