Abstract The method of moments under the assumption of lognormal particle size distribution was applied to simulate nanoparticle formation, due to nucleation, condensation and coagulation, in a free turbulent jet. The cases of high nucleation rates and the coagulation-controlled growth of particles are considered. The weak sensitivity of the mathematical model to turbulent Prandtl and turbulent Schmidt numbers is demonstrated. The influence of the nozzle diameter on the aerosol characteristics formed in the jet is investigated. It is shown that using smaller nozzle diameters leads to a higher polydispersity of the formed aerosol.
