Abstract

Sekiya and Takeda [2003, Earth Planets Space 55, 263-269] showed that the hydrodynamic gas flow around a dust aggregate larger than the mean free path of gas molecules prevents the growth of the body. In contrast to Wurm et al. [2004, Astrophys. J. 606, 983-987], we argue that this conclusion is not altered even if we take account of the effect of the flow through a porous dust aggregate.
