Abstract:

A review of the experimental and theoretical literature describing the mobility of fractal aggregates over the previous three decades is presented. Aggregates are those formed via both diffusion and reaction limited cluster-cluster aggregation processes, DLCA and RLCA, which form aggregates with fractal dimensions and prefactors of ca. 1.78 and 1.3 and 2.1 and 0.94, respectively. Emphasis is placed on DLCA aggregates. The entire Knudsen number range from continuum to free molecular is reviewed. The review finds a simple and general consensus description of mobility for the entire range.
