The role of tortuosity in filtration efficiency: a general network model for filtration

Abstract:

Filters are composed of a complex network of interconnected pores each with tortuous paths. We present a general network model to describe a filter structure comprising a random network of interconnected pores, relaxing traditional assumptions made with simplified theoretical models. We use the model to examine the dependence of the filter performance on both its underlying pore structure (expressed through the pore interconnectivity and porosity gradient) and the feed composition (expres...
