This in turn reduces the adhesion forces between particles and the substrate causing the meniscus capillary forces to effectively remove the largest diamond crystals from the PAAO membrane with a net force [F.
Capillary forces between the small particles make the resulting structure very dense and give it a slightly shrunken component that is essentially full density with tensile and hardness properties equivalent to handbook values.
Smaller mammals are challenged during urination by high viscous and capillary forces that limit their urine to single drops.
The author covers the surface chemistry and geochemistry of hydraulic fracturing, capillary forces in fluid flow in porous solids, surface active and fracture-forming substances, and a wide variety of other related subjects over the course of the bookAEs eight chapters.
These microscopic cavities induce capillary forces that keep sanitizers outside the concave areas.
These coating essentially act like a sponge, when a vapor bubble forms on the surface they wick liquid underneath it using capillary forces to delay the dry-out phenomena associated with critical heat flux.
The coatings are custom-made for each application by combining a porous solid with a liquid that gets trapped within it via strong capillary forces.
Gyrolab systems use precise, automated control of centrifugal and capillary forces to steer liquid flow through nanoliter-scale microfluidic structures contained within Gyrolab CDs, automating the assay workflow.
It will be based on integrating thermoresponsive polymers on top of strongly adsorbing solids, where the temperature gradient generated by asymmetric irradiation will cause imbalanced capillary forces leading to drop motion.
Capillary forces in the BCU collect and distribute blood and an air vent prevents air bubbles from forming, ensuring an accurate volume is delivered with each sample.
2012a and Chavez, Sebesta, Kopecky, Lopez &Landaverde, 2013); this mean that capillary forces (suction) on the soil structure make that an "apparent cohesion" improves the strength of the soil, also cementation could be important.
