Complex Fluids: The Physics of Emulsions
by M. E. Cates
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 43
These lectures start with the mean field theory for a symmetric binary fluid mixture, addressing interfacial tension, the stress tensor, and the equations of motion (Model H). We then consider the phase separation kinetics of such a mixture: coalescence, Ostwald ripening, its prevention by trapped species, coarsening of bicontinuous states, and the role of shear flow. The third topic addressed is the stabilization of emulsions by using surfactants to reduce or even eliminate the interfacial tension between phases.

In writing this book, while preserving the usual rigour, the endeavour has been made to impart to it by the character of the illustrations and examples, a modern and practical flavour which will render it more widely useful. The calculus is not used.

Solutions of the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations with initial conditions (Cauchy problem) for two and three dimensions are obtained in the convergence series form by the iterative method using the Fourier and Laplace transforms in this paper.

This book describes the fundamentals of compressible flow phenomena for engineers and others. It can be used as a reference book for people who have some knowledge of the basics of fundamental fluid mechanics, calculus, and physics.

The author demonstrates a stable Lagrangian solid modeling method, tracking the interactions of solid mass particles, rather than using a meshed grid. This method avoids the problem of tensile instability seen with Smooth Particle Applied Mechanics.
