Several studies based on analytical models and numerical simulations have shown that it is difficult to control airborne particle movements in a ventilated room. However, more knowledge and information on particle characteristics and particle movements, in combination with new numerical simulation tools, have recently made it easier to estimate particle patterns. In the present paper new information is used to evaluate the role of filtration and ventilation in the particle elimination process. Key parameters found include the particle aerodynamic diameter and the particle settling velocity governed by Stokes formula. Particle dispersion and settling are highly dependent on the ventilation airflow structure. Calculations with CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) show characteristic patterns of particle movements in rooms with displacement ventilation.
