Wetting and Spreading Dynamics: 138 (Surfactant Science) by Victor M. Starov, Manuel G. Velarde, Clayton J. Radke

By Victor M. Starov, Manuel G. Velarde, Clayton J. Radke

Wetting and Spreading Dynamics explains wetting phenomena whilst a liquid partly or thoroughly wets strong or immiscible liquid surfaces. Written for either newbies and skilled researchers within the box, the ebook makes use of ideas and terminology from colloid technology, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics to resolve equilibrium and dynamic difficulties in wetting and spreading.

This publication explains how floor forces performing at the three-phase touch line confirm equilibrium, hysteresis touch angles, and all different equilibrium and kinetics good points of beverages while involved with solids or different immiscible beverages. It examines the interplay of floor forces, capillary forces, and houses of the transition sector among the majority liquid (drop or meniscus) and reliable substrate.

Detailing the kinetics of spreading over either porous and nonporous substrates, the booklet observes how floor forces eliminate “singularity” on the relocating three-phase touch line within the latter. The authors introduce novel common spreading legislation that follow to the spreading over porous substrates, that have been experimentally confirmed. additionally they examine the effect of surfactants on kinetics of spreading over hydrophobic substrates, spontaneous imbibition into hydrophobic or in part hydrophilic porous our bodies.

Drawing jointly conception and experimental facts whereas offering over one hundred fifty figures to demonstrate the recommendations, Wetting and Spreading Dynamics discusses open questions, demanding situations, and destiny instructions for examine and myriad purposes of equilibrium and dynamics of wetting.

PHP Handbuch

Personal home page ist die Abkürzung für "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor", eine Skriptsprache, die sich in HTML einbinden lässt. Viele der syntaktischen Möglichkeiten sind den Programmiersprachen C. Java und Perl entnommen und es wurden auch einige PHP-spezifische gains entwickelt. Das Ziel der Sprache ist es. das Schreiben von Programmen zur Erzeugung von dynamisch generierten Seiten zu erleichtem und zu beschleunigen.

Ingenieurmechanik 2: Deformierbare Körper by Mahir B. Sayir, Jürg Dual, Stephan Kaufmann (auth.)

By Mahir B. Sayir, Jürg Dual, Stephan Kaufmann (auth.)

Der vorliegende zweite Band setzt die "Ingenieurmechanik" mit der Festigkeitslehre fortress. Nach Einf?hrung der Grundbegriffe (Spannungstensor, Verschiebungsvektor, Verzerrungstensor) werden die Stoffgleichungen des linear elastischen K?rpers besprochen. Die folgenden Kapitel behandeln Zug, Biegung und Torsion von Balken und St?ben, wobei neben den bekannten analytischen N?herungen auch numerische Methoden angesprochen werden. Die Berechnung von Deformationsenergien f?hrt auf Energieverfahren, die auf dem Theorem der virtuellen Arbeiten beruhen, welches seinerseits aus dem zentralen Prinzip der virtuellen Leistungen folgt. Abschlie?ende Kapitel enthalten Einf?hrungen in die Stabilit?tstheorie, die Plastizit?tstheorie, die Bruchmechanik und zeitabh?ngiges Materialverhalten. Sie schlagen eine Br?cke von den in der "Ingenieurmechanik" verwendeten Grundlagen zur Spezialliteratur dieser Fachgebiete.
