    Phase behaviors of dodecane-hexadecane ( n-CH-CH, C-C) binary mixtures in bulk and confined in SBA-15 (pore diameters 3.8, 9.5, and 17.2 nm) are investigated using differential scanning calorimetry. According to the thermal analysis, the bulk mixtures belong to a system of partial miscibility...

    The bulk density of compressible materials depends on the compressive load to which they are subjected. This results in bulk density variation within piles of such materials. However, it is difficult to measure bulk density in situ without disturbing the sample or changing the load on it. A...

    The bulk metallic glass Pd40Ni40P20 was prepared from the cast alloy in a belt apparatus under high pressure. The absence of crystallization in the bulk metallic glass was confirmed by x-ray diffraction and differential thermal analysis. The microstructure of the glass was examined by scanning...

    We measure the instantaneous velocity of particles sedimenting in a three-dimensional container at low particulate Reynolds numbers. We aim at characterizing the main specificities of the particle velocity fluctuations. We obtain the local and instantaneous Eulerian velocity field from particle...
