Time effects in evolution of structure and rheology of highly concentrated emulsions
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2005)
The subject of this study is highly concentrated emulsion explosive (HCEE). These emulsions are dispersions of an aqueous phase (up to 90 v-%) in an oil phase. The dispersed droplets consist of an aqueous solution of ...
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 ...
Bingham yield stress and Bingham plastic viscosity of homogeneous Non-Newtonian slurries
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2016)
This dissertation presents how material properties (solids densities, particle size distributions, particle shapes and concentration) of gold tailings slurries are related to their rheological parameters, which are yield ...
