Short summary
This article presents a new model that simulates particle formation in vehicle exhaust. The model is used to examine particle dynamics, such as nucleation, inside a diesel exhaust laboratory sampling system. The results suggest lower slope of nucleation rate versus sulfuric acid concentration than previously found.
