Publications from when I worked at the National Institute of Agrocultural Engineerting at Silsoe, Bedfordshire. I was part of the Spray Physics Group and in partcular was involved in mathematical modelling and computer simuation of electrostatically charged sprays. Computation was largely due to a SuperBrain CPM micro [pic1, pic2, inside, @wikipedia] ... and there were loads of brightly painted tractors everywhere smiley face
