Abstract : The evaporation of sulfur mustard (HD) from glass was studied as a function of temperature, drop size, and airflow rate. The evaporation rate was measured by collecting the HD vapor using thermal desorption tubes that were connected to the wind tunnel. The evaporation rate increased with higher temperature, drop size, and wind speed. Five different wind tunnels were used, and it was possible to fit all of the data generated to one regression function.
