Self-Clarification Phenomenon and Sound Waves Attenuation by Foam

00:00 01-02-2006
We are focused on the capabilities of gas-liquid foams to attenuate acoustic waves. It is shown that the addition of solid particles to gas-liquid foams has opposite effects depending on the concentration of the added solid particles. As long as the concentration of the added solid particles is smaller than a certain critical value the sound attenuation coefficient increases and as a result in the sound velocity decreases. However, if the concentration of the added solid particles becomes larger than this critical value the attenuation coefficient decreases and the sound velocity increases. It is postulated that the sound attenuation phenomenon is largely governed by the hydrodynamic resistance of the Plateau-Gibbs channels to the flow of liquid through them. When the concentration of the solid particles reaches some critical value, the particles block the Plateau-Gibbs channels and stop the filtration. As a result the attenuation coefficient of the sound wave decreases while the sound velocity, in such three-phase foams, increases. The point at which the sound attenuation stops, and the sound velocity starts to increase is known as the point of self-clarification. The present study provides a plausible explanation to the above-mentioned contradicting effect, and the self-clarification phenomenon.<SPAN STYLE="display: none"> <P>Acetylenide minutes, pointedly?
