The effect of type and concentration of surfactant on stability and rheological properties of explosive emulsions
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2009)
This study investigated water-in-oil (WIG) super-concentrated emulsions used as pumpable explosives. The aqueous phase of the emulsions is a supersaturated nitrate salt solution (at room temperature), with a volume ...
Investigation of factors effecting yield stress determinations using the slump test.
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2008)
Certain non-Newtonian fluids exhibit a yield stress which can be measured with a variety of instruments varying from very sophisticated rotary and tube viscometers to hand-held slump cones and cylinders of various sizes. ...
