This textbook is designed to provide the theory, methods of measurement, and principal applications of the expanding field of interfacial hydrodynamics. It is intended to serve the research needs of both academic and industrial scientists, including chemical or mechanical engineers, material and surface scientists, physical chemists, chemical and biophysicists, rheologists, physiochemical hydrodynamicists, and applied mathematicians (especially those with interests in viscous fluid mechanics and continuum mechanics).
As a textbook it provides materials for a one- or two-semester graduate-level course in interfacial transport processes. It may also be noted that, while separate practical and theoretical subdivisions of material have been introduced, a kind of cross-emphasis is often stressed: (i) to the academic scientist, or the importance of understanding major applications of interfacial transport; and (ii) to the industrial scientist, of the importance of understanding the underlying theory.
Part I: Interfacial Rheology: Basic Theory, Measurements & Applications; Interfacial Rheology and its applications; Basic Properties of Interfacial Rheology; Interfacial Transport Processes; Interfacial Transport of Momentum; Interfacial Transport of Species; Measurement of Dynamic Interfacial Tension and Dilatational Elasticity; Measurement of Interfacial Shear Viscosity; Measurement of Interfacial Dilatational Viscosity; Measurement of Non-Newtonian Interfacial Rheological Properties; Interfacial Stability; Thin Liquid Film Hydrodynamics; Thin Liquid Film Stability; Emulsion and Foam Stability; Foam Rheology. Part II: Micromechanical Theory of Interfacial Transport Processes; A Surface-Excess Theory of Interfacial Transport Processes; Surface-Excess Transport of Momentum; Surface-Excess Transport of Species; A Micromechanical line-Excess Theory of Equilibrium Line Tension.
