Abstract : The Obscuration Sciences Branch of Physics Division, Research Directorate at the U.S. Army Chemical Research, Development and Engineering Center, has undertaken a research project. This effort is aimed at identifying a comprehensive algorithm, computer program, or theory that might already exist and could be used to design aerosol sampling and transport systems. Initially, a literature survey was performed by the Obscuration Sciences Branch which began with several hundred potential articles and has been distilled to four candidate reports. This report evaluates the four candidate aerosol sampling models for self consistency and compares the numerical calculations resulting from four models. Finally a comparison of these model-derived results is made to the experimentally-derived results.
