The two-scale-factor universality hypothesis of critical phenomena is used to estimate the liquid/liquid interfacial tension near the critical point of binary alloys with miscibility gap. Experimental results of measurements of the correlation length of local concentration fluctuations (data for the systems cadmium/gallium and sodium/lithium taken from the literature), and experimental results of measurements of the temperature dependence of the molar heat capacity at constant pressure (data for the system bismuth/gallium taken from the literature) are used for this illustration.

    We investigate theoretically Marangoni-Bénard instability in an evaporating liquid layer surmounted by its vapor and an inert gas. A Galerkin-Eckhaus method, based on a slaving principle and an iterative algorithm, and a direct finite element method are used to determine the evaporation rate...
