Inhalation toxicology encompasses the deposition, retention, and physical and chemical effects of respirable particles, which are air pollutants, on mammalian lungs. This series of papers on the generation and measurement of particles is by a group of international experts who convened at the University of Rochester in June 1970. Investigators will find that the physical understanding of particles and their deposition has outdistanced insight into their effects, which relate to human lung disease.
The first papers consider mathematical fundamentals and models such as turbulent deposition on artificial grass, collection efficiencies on thin wires, filtration of aerosols by analytical pore filters
