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)

A novel ultrasonic resonance spectrometer for microbubble sizing

R. M. Schmitt; H. J. Schmidt; O. Kripfgans; C. Poser IEEE 1992 Ultrasonics Symposium Proceedings, 1992

A method and system for in vitro estimation of the diameter distribution in an ensemble for microbubbles is described. The system is based on the two- frequency insonification method and allows rapid (<1 s) distribution estimates in the range of &ges;1 μm and bubble lifetime measurements. Attenuation backscatter and velocity measurements can be performed in the same sample volume. The ...


Waveform control in welding power supplies

T. L. Vincent IEEE Control Systems, 2006

The convergence of advanced power electronics and fast computation has enabled welding power supply control to become more sophisticated, with power and voltage controlled by means of feedback to follow prescribed periodic waveforms that achieve different requirements at different times. An example of periodic excitation is the proprietary surface tension transfer (STT) process developed by Lincoln Electric. In this process, ...

In this work, we present the non-contact manipulation of mesoscale random- shaped, large and heavy objects immersed in thin liquid water (< 0.8 mm).
