    The paper describes an analytical method for predicting the maximum vapour subcooling and final droplet number distribution in a rapidly expanding pure vapour undergoing homogeneous nucleation. This type of flow is characterised by very high nucleation rates which are quenched by the release of...

    A new method for changing the supersaturation in the Turbulent Mixing CNC has been developed and used to study the influence of composition and vapor properties on heterogeneous nucleation. Supersaturation was controlled by changing the condensing vapor pressure in nozzle flow by saturating only...

    Considered is the process of ice nucleation in the atmosphere as a result of heterogeneous condensation of water vapor in surface inhomogeneities of aerosol particles and of subsequent heterogeneous crystallization of supercooled water accumulation. It is revealed that the size, structure, and...

O.; Pöschl, U. // Atmospheric Chemistry & Physics;2010, Vol. 10 Issue 7, p3365 

    Atmospheric aerosol particles serving as Cloud Condensation Nuclei (CCN) are key elements of the hydrological cycle and climate. We measured and characterized CCN in polluted air and biomass burning smoke during the PRIDE-PRD2006 campaign from 1-30 July 2006 at a rural site ~60 km northwest of...

    It is well known that the release of latent heat by a homogeneously nucleating steam flow can have a strong effect on the flow dynamics and this is particularly true if the flow is transonic or supersonic with shock waves present. Most research has been aimed at calculating the overall flow...

    An integral steady state model of nucleation and condensation was used to examine the formation and growth of D[sub 2]O droplets in a supersonic nozzle. The classical nucleation rate expression was used together with isothermal and nonisothermal droplet growth laws. For each experiment, the...
