EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Self-Cleaning of Surfaces and Water Droplet Mobility deals with the self-cleaning of hydrophobic surfaces. Chapters cover the basics of wetting states of fluids and surface characteristics in terms of texture topology and free energy. The self-cleaning aspects of surfaces, such as various synthesizing and fabrication processes are then introduced and discussed, along with environmental dust properties, including elemental compositions, particle sizes and shapes, and their chemo-mechanics characteristics. In addition, mud formation in humid air, as well as ambient and dry mud adhesion on optically transparent surfaces is explored, as is water droplet dynamics on hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces, amongst other topics. The book fills the gap between the physical fundamentals of surface energy and texture characteristics for practical applications of surface cleaning and provides a basic understanding of the self-cleaning of surfaces that will be idea for academics, researchers and students. Showcases the fundamental aspects of the self-cleaning of surfaces Includes practical applications in energy and other sectors Contains a review of the characterization of environmental dust on hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces Discusses the fabrication and optimization of surfaces towards self-cleaning Presents practical applications of the self-cleaning of surfaces via water droplet mobility

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

With the ever-increasing amount of research being published, it is a Herculean task to be fully conversant with the latest research developments in any field, and the arena of adhesion and adhesives is no exception. Thus, topical review articles provide an alternate and very efficient way to stay abreast of the state-of-the-art in many subjects representing the field of adhesion science and adhesives. Based on the success of the preceding volumes in this series “Progress in Adhesion and Adhesives”), the present volume comprises 12 review articles published in Volume 5 (2017) of Reviews of Adhesion and Adhesives. The subject of these 12 reviews fall into the following general areas. Nanoparticles in reinforced polymeric composites. Wettability behavior and its modification, including superhydrophobic surfaces. Ways to promote adhesion, including tuber adhesion. Adhesives and adhesive joints Dental adhesion. The topics covered include: Nanoparticles as interphase modifiers in fiber reinforced polymeric composites; fabrication of micro/nano patterns on polymeric substrates to control wettability behavior; plasma processing of aluminum alloys to promote adhesion; UV-curing of adhesives; functionally graded adhesively bonded joints; adhesion between unvulgarized elastomers; electrowetting for digital microfluidics; control of biofilm at the tooth-restoration bonding interface; easy-to-clean superhydrophobic coatings; cyanoacrylates; promotion of resin-dentin bond longevity in adhesive dentistry; and effects of nanoparticles on nanocomposites Mode I and Mode II fractures.

Physical And Chemical Properties Of Water

Release Date: 1976-04

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Water is basic to terrestrial life, and its distribution has controlled the growth and spread of human civilization. The importance of water to modern industrial processes, urban planning, and agricultural development is hard to overestimate. With these compelling motivations, it is natural that more tech nical and scientific study should have been devoted to this one substance than to any other. Research on water and its solutions has exhibited a marked expansion during the last decade. In sig nificant degree, this has resulted from the availability of new experimental tools and techniques, and of dramatic advances in computing science. This combination, in skilled hands, promises eventually to explain the unusual properties of water and aqueous solutions in unequivocal molecular terms. like wise, one now has reasonable hope that the active role that water plays in biochemical processes will be revealed and explained quantitatively at the molecular level. Owing to the widespread scholarly interest in aqueous science, it is clear that guides to the overwhelm ing literature on the subject are valuable. They serve ideally to indicate what is known and what is not, which areas harbor controversies, and what types of research attacks seem most fruitful (in answering more questions than they raise!). Whatever time and resources need to be spent in preparing compre hensive bibliographies should be quickly offset in the total scientific community by the efficiencies generated.
