The report briefly describes the fundamental mechanisms and limiting factors involved in the electrostatic precipitation process. It discusses theories and procedures used in the computer model to describe the physical mechanisms, and generally describes the major operations performed in the computer program. It lists the entire computer program and defines all variables used in the program. Major improvements to the fundamental basis of the model include: the capability of generating theoretical voltage-current characteristics for wire-plate geometries, a new method for describing the effects of rapping reentrainment, and a new procedure for predicting the effects of particles on the electrical conditions. The computer has been made more user oriented by making the input data less cumbersome, by making the output data more complete, by making modifications which save computer time, and by providing for the construction of log-normal particle size distributions.
