TASK[TM] (Tersus Advanced Surface Kinetics) reduces the interfacial force by three to four orders of magnitude allowing improved mass recovery and improved treatment by other remediation techniques.
940 pounds of total interfacial force to handle any job.
The nature and the interfacial force connection depend on the structure, on the surface characteristics of the fibers (roughness, determined surface, porosity, crystal dimension, the presence of functional classifications chemical active) and on structural characteristics of the matrix (chemical composition, macromolecules conformation).

We describe the development and applications of the interfacial force microscope (IFM), which involves force compensation on the sensor that ensures the tip position accurately follows the z-positioning actuator, independent of load.
The relative importance of applied viscous force and counteracting interfacial force can be expressed by Taylor equation derived from the studies of deformation and disintegration of the dispersed phase for Newtonian systems in simple shear fields in the absence of coalescence effects (47).
By balancing the interfacial force and the shear force, he predicted the maximum drop size that would be stable for small deformations in Newtonian fluids.
Most methods are based on a balance between a driving force (gravitational, centrifugal, brownian motion, shearing force) and an interfacial force that tends to minimize the contact area between the phases.
This is due to the descending interfacial force, which is smaller in lower junction angles.
Similarly to the Rayleigh instability phenomenon, the kinetics of drop retraction are controlled by the balance between the interfacial force, which tends to restore the spherical shape, and the viscous stresses, which oppose such a relaxation.
We assume an elliptical cross section of the drop, and that the magnitude of the interfacial force depends on the radius, [Mathematical Expression Omitted] at the maximum of the curve in Fig.
