    SEITA-Imperial Tobacco, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Cigarette mainstream smoke yields are broadly proportional to the quantity of tobacco burned during puffs. A mathematical model was developed to calculate this quantity during smoking, taking into account the tobacco burning rates during and between...
