A biological warfare agent (BWA), one of the most hazardous weapons, can destroy overall ecosystems including human beings and threaten national security. BWAs are difficult to detect due to their colorless and odorless properties as well as their latent period. A sheath flow nozzle, which is widely used in laser detection systems for micro/nano-sized particles, focuses the flow of aerosol particles. The geometrical configuration of a sheath flow nozzle affects the flow characteristics of aerosol particles, which results in a large impact on the detecting performance. In this paper, numerical analysis on the sheath flow nozzle was conducted using ANSYS CFX 16.1 to improve detecting performance. The results of streamlines, pressure, and velocity distributions with different exit angles of the outer nozzle are graphically depicted.
