The stability of a single, one-component droplet has been investigated experimentally. Using such a droplet as the initial condition for an evaporation experiment, time histories of the droplet size, temperature, and temperature of the surrounding vapor are obtained. The results indicate that the liquid temperature is always less than that in the vapor.

    The research of restoration applicability of dump rocks started about 25 years ago. However, the complex geological, pedological and hydrogeological evaluation and the evaluation of zoocoenoses of dump areas has not been elaborated yet. It is the main topic of grant project started in 2009. Main...

    The article discusses the aerosol size distribution dynamics for simulating particle formation and growth in a mixed flow chamber. It reveals that the aerosol dynamics in the chamber is a competition between aerosol growth and scavenging or deposition which results in a cyclic particle formation...
