Abstract

Graded glass particles were propelled onto two different fabric types by means of an airgun, and an assessment of the retention of such particles was made. The data on the rate of loss best fits an exponential curve, but for clarity in comparing the total data, log v log plots are found to be most helpful. It has been concluded that the number of particles transferred to the fabric is dependent upon the fabric type and the particle size, but the rate of loss of the particles is primarily determined by the latter parameter.
