Reducing the permeability of residential duct systems.

In this paper, we investigate the potential of an aerosol-based technique to significantly reduce the leakiness of residential air distribution systems (ADS). The first part is dedicated to a short review of theoretical analyses of particle transport and deposition in an ADS as well as particle removal in the leaks. The purpose of this review is to pre-determine the ranges of the flow rates, pressure differentials and miscellaneous characteristics of the particles that would allow plugging of the leaks in a relatively short time.
