Abstract:

The evaporation of sulfur mustard from sand was studied as a function of temperature, drop size and air flow rate, using the same instrumentation as prior studies on glass. The evaporation rate increased with higher temperature, drop size, and wind speed and an empirical equation was determined that would allow for the calculation of the evaporation rate given the environmental conditions.
