...Weiguo Gu; Yasuo Kawaguchi; Dezhong Wang; Saito Akihiro Drag-reducing flow of dilute surfactant solution in the two-dimensional channel is investigated experimentally by using particle image velocimetry (PIV) system. Five hundred instantaneous velocity frames of u - v in the x - y plane are taken...

.... In such a process, curved liquid jets produced by rotating a perforated cylindrical drum are utilized to control drop sizes and breakup lengths. In general, smaller droplets are observed as the rotation rate is increased. The addition of surfactants along the free surface of the liquid jet as it emerges from...

...Tomiichi Hasegawa; Masahiro Karasawa; Takatsune Narumi Surfactant solutions are usually used under conditions accompanied by transient dynamic surfaces, and therefore the dynamic surface tension (DST) is important in many industrial processes. Theories regarding DST have been developed exclusively...

...R. J. Wilkens; D. K. Thomas; S. R. Glassmeyer A set of experiments was performed to study flow pattern suppression in horizontal air-water pipe flow by means of surfactant additive. Results suggest that addition of the surfactant to the gas-liquid flow significantly reduces the occurrence of slug...
