In this work, particles detachment, resuspension and transport due to indoor human walking were studied numerically and experimentally. The stepping motions of the foot, down and up, were modeled using a combination of two effective circular disks. The flow generated by the squeezing film at the shoe–floor interface was assumed to be laminar and the corresponding velocity field was evaluated. The flow outside of the foot was modeled based on a wall jet theory. The effects of adhesion force and… CONTINUE READING
