Optical microstructure of unheated emulsions showed that the dispersed phase droplets were interacting with each other (Fig.
In the above co relations, "f" is the fraction of the wall covered by the clusters in contact with heat transfer surface and (1-f) be that of dispersed phase contacting with heat transfer surface.
According to the results of conducted investigations the effective tickness alters and depends on the dispersed phase concentrations in emulsion and a gelatine fraction.
The slip boundary condition for the dispersed phase is prescribed according to the model in [18] as the first step in the computations.
In that context, the solid particles (discrete elements) are the dispersed phase and the gas is the continuous phase.
Also, it is aimed to investigate the effect of droplet size on corrosion rate for a wide range of dispersed phase fraction.
The onset of emulsion shear thinning is often a function of the dispersed phase volume fraction, sometimes occurring only at higher volume fractions, and sometimes occurring at volume fractions as low as 10 percent (Otsubo and Prud'homme 1994).
The SPAN 80, being lipophilic, stabilizes water in oil emulsions following Bancroft's rule, which states that the dispersed phase is the one where the surfactant has higher affinity.
Colloids are classified by the state of their components and the degree of attraction between the dispersed phase and dispersion medium.
When the dispersed phase is no longer visibly distinguishable, the dispersion is homogenized.
