As one of the most critical steps to recover valuable particles from a slurry using flotation, knowledge of the drainage of the thin liquid film between an air bubble and a solid surface is required. The main focus of this thesis is to develop and use an integrated thin film drainage appratus...
Acid-base properties of cyanobacterial surfaces II: Silica as a chemical stressor influencing cell surface reactivityDownload
Bacteria grow in complex solutions where the adsorption of aqueous species and nucleation of mineral phases on the cell surface may interfere with membrane-dependent homeostatic functions. While previous investigations have provided evidence that bacteria may alter their surface chemical...
Study of non-equilibrium interactions between an air bubble and a hydrophilic/hydrophobic solid surface with the non-linearized Stokes-Reynolds-Young-Laplace model (NSRYL model)Download
The interaction between bubbles and solid surfaces is important to a broad range of industrial and biological processes. Various experimental techniques have been developed to measure the interactions of bubbles approaching solids in a liquid. In this thesis the consistency and accuracy of such...
During separation of emulsified water from oil, a viscous intermediate layer builds up between water and oil phases. This layer which is referred to as rag layer disrupts emulsion destabilization and water removal. The present research is intended to better understand the formation of a rag layer...
