Personal cascade impactors are widely used in occupational aerosol exposure assessment. Appropriate algorithms must be used to determine the total particle size distribution from masses collected on the stages of the cascade impactor. Such algorithms should be regarded as integral components of the measurement system. When evaluating algorithms for reconstruction of size distributions from cascade impactor data, the eventual use of the size distribution must be considered. So, from an… CONTINUE READING
