A series of water samples were collected from the test section of the Garfield Thomas 48-inch diameter water tunnel and analyzed for particulate shape, size, and elemental composition. These collections took place over a two week period of time and over a range of test section flow conditions. The analyses have shown that the standard deviation of the particulate average diameter is 2.1 microns, that they are typically non-spherical in shape with an average fineness ratio of 0.65, and that the major elements are aluminum and silicon with minor and trace elements consisting of chlorine, calcium, iron, nickel and zinc. author
