By Jacob H. Masliyah
A brand new, definitive viewpoint of electrokinetic and colloid shipping processes
Responding to renewed curiosity within the topic of electrokinetics, Electrokinetic and Colloid shipping Phenomena is a well timed review of the newest learn and purposes during this box for either the newbie and the pro. An outgrowth of an past textual content (by coauthor Jacob Masliyah), this self-contained reference offers an updated precis of the literature on electrokinetic and colloid delivery phenomena in addition to direct pedagogical perception into the improvement of the topic during the last a number of decades.
a unique departure from ordinary colloid technology monographs, Electrokinetic and Colloid delivery Phenomena offers the main salient gains of the speculation in an easy and direct demeanour, permitting the ebook to function a stepping-stone for extra studying and examine. moreover, the e-book uniquely discusses numerical simulation of electrokinetic difficulties and demonstrates using advertisement finite aspect software program for fixing those multiphysics difficulties. one of the subject matters lined are:
* Mathematical preliminaries
* Colloidal systems
* Electrostatics and alertness of electrostatics
* electrical double layer
* Electroosmosis and streaming potential
* Electrophoresis and sedimentation potential
* London-Van der Waals forces and the DLVO theory
* Coagulation and colloid deposition
* Numerical simulation of electrokinetic phenomena
* functions of electrokinetic phenomena
simply because this thorough reference doesn't require complicated mathematical wisdom, it permits a graduate or a senior undergraduate scholar coming near near the topic for the 1st time to simply interpret the theories. however, the appliance of suitable mathematical ideas and the labored examples are tremendous beneficial to verified researchers and pros fascinated about quite a lot of parts, together with electroosmosis, streaming strength, electrophoretic separations, business practices regarding colloids and complicated fluids, environmental remediation, suspensions, and microfluidic structures.
