This is due to an enhanced coalescence process when the concentration of the dispersed phase is large (69).
However, the decrease of the ultrasonic attenuation with the addition of HDPE-g-MAH suggested that the attenuation depended greatly on the particle size of the dispersed phase.
However, the dispersed phase varies in size and shape from circular and small droplets to large droplets which.
In the extrusion process, the shear viscosity of PLA (matrix) is reduced and a negative effect on the dispersion of the dispersed phase (PE1) should be expected.
The former provides the copolymer mass fraction distribution or RTD and the latter the morphology distribution or the dispersed phase domain size distribution (DSD) for dispersed type polymer blends.
Consequently, this seems to have a potential effect on the size of the dispersed phase within the matrix [50-53].
According to the results of conducted investigations the effective tickness alters and depends on the dispersed phase concentrations in emulsion and a gelatine fraction.
In Smooth, droplets are formed one at a time by pushing the dispersed phase through a specially designed porous plate.
In order to take into account collision of particles in highly loaded CFB domain, the dispersed phase is presented as a polydispersed phase where collisions between the particles occur due to variation in particles size and their turbulent fluctuation motion [6].
Also, it is aimed to investigate the effect of droplet size on corrosion rate for a wide range of dispersed phase fraction.
Flow fields within the continuous phase are disrupted around dispersed droplets, and so the emulsion viscosity rises with increasing dispersed phase volume fraction.
Rotational shear flow breaks up the droplets of the dispersed phase, which isn't always achieved with high-viscosity fluids in conventional mixers.
