First prize in the 1st Scientific International Conference of CBRNE (SICC 2017) for the poster FOG DYNAMICS. Juan Sánchez García-Casarrubios was awarded as its first author.
The poster described the Fog Dynamics Laboratory working principle.
The deadly properties of most of CBRN warfare agents are based on their dispersed condition. Particularly the efficiency of BRN agents needs a high surface-volume rate that is not provided by a collapsed or bulk form. The knowledge of the dynamics of fogs, smoke and dispersed materials in air should, therefore, be of the maximum priority.
As a part of the FP7 funded project COUNTERFOG, a laboratory for experimental tests of fog dynamics has been designed and built. The results show how a fog in air can be washed out using another fog with a minimum use of water solution providing the basis for a general rapid general response system for collapsing all kinds of dispersed agents (smoke, fog, spores, etc.). The effects of temperature, humidity, and other conditions are also shown. This work has been funded by FP7-SEC-2012-1 program of the EU Commission under grant number 312804.
