Abstract:

Dick BedeauxWe analyse the curvature dependence of the heat and mass transfer resistances of the surface of nano bubbles and droplets. For this we use an extension [1-7] of the so-called square gradient model introduced by van der Waals to describe the density profile in a one-component fluid, and by Kahn and Hilliard for mixtures, to time dependent problems. This enables us to calculate equilibrium and non-equilibrium density profiles for the two phase state. Together with earlier derived integral relations [8] we are then able to calculate these resistances for a hexane-cyclohexane mixture [12], argon [13, 14] and for water [15]…
