Filtration validation

The fitration simulation is based on successive blockage of the simulated unit cell by particles.  So a test of its validation also tests the validity of the void size distribution and permeability simulations as well as the filtration algorithm.  In Price et al, 2009, we described a validation showing imprecise matches between simulation and experiment, as exemplified below, which were nevertheless workably close to be a useful supplement to the bench testing of filters.
