Surface tension

View this topic in
Surface tension is a property of the surface of a liquid that allows it to resist an external force. It is revealed, for example, in floating of some objects on the surface of water, even though they are denser than water, and in the ability of some insects and even reptiles to run on the water surface. This property is caused by cohesion of like molecules, and is responsible for many of the behaviors of liquids. (Wikipedia.org)

Nozzle track and CHF prediction of spray cooling for inclined sprays

Yong-xian Guo; Jian-yuan Jia; Jian-tao Chang; Huan-ling Liu; Shao-rong Zhou Semiconductor Thermal Measurement and Management Symposium, 2009. SEMI-THERM 2009. 25th Annual IEEE, 2009

The tracks of the nozzles were studied during spray cooling with different inclination angles, based on the study of Visaria and the critical heat flux (CHF) criterion, which means that CHF will be achieved when the spray is configured on the condition that the spray impact area just inscribes a square test surface. The predictions of the tracks of the ...

We report the first demonstration of interfacial tension monitoring across two immiscible liquids using electrowetting on dielectric (EWOD). Impedance measurement during EWOD reveals the variation of surfactant concentration at the liquid-liquid interface in real time. The discrepancy with optical method was within 3.5 mN/m and the noise level was under 0.5 mN/m. We also show such approach can be used ...

The single nano particle state was obtained by using a ultrasonic humidifier. To control the surface tension, the concentration of methanol changed in the suspension of TiO2 nano particle. The collecting effect was investigated by measuring the particle size distribution. As the surface tension was decreased by increasing the concentration of methanol, the particle size at the peak of distribution ...
