Grahic Jump Location
(a) Rate of virus transmission (based upon a normalized inlet concentration of 1 virus/ml) through a cylindrical pore of elliptical cross section. Pore height=1 μm;width=4 μm. Solid line: upper bound of transmission rate for both HIV, HBV. Dashed line: lower bound for HIV. Dotted line: lower bound for HBV. (b) Rate of virus transmission (based upon a normalized inlet concentration of 1 virus/ml) through a cylindrical pore of elliptical cross section. Pore height=5 μm;width=20 μm. Solid line: upper bound of transmission rate for both HIV, HBV. Dashed line: lower bound for HIV. Dotted line: lower bound for HBV. (c) Rate of virus transmission (based upon a normalized inlet concentration of 1 virus/ml) through a cylindrical pore of elliptical cross section. Pore height=20 μm;width=80 μm. Solid line: upper bound of transmission rate for both HIV, HBV. Dashed line: lower bound for HIV. Dotted line: lower bound for HBV.
Grahic Jump Location
Rate of HIV transmission (based upon a normalized inlet concentration of 1 virus/ml) through a cylindrical pore of elliptical cross section, as a function of pore shape. Pore height is held constant at 5 μm. Driving pressure gradients are 1000 dyns/cm3 (lower 2 curves) and 100,000 dyns/cm3 (upper 2 curves). Dotted line represents upper bound for transmission rate; solid line the lower bound.
