- Fast Measurements of the Gas-Liquid Diffusion Coefficient in the Gaussian Wake of a Spherical Bubble
Nicolas Dietrich, Jessica Francois, Mélanie Jimenez, Arnaud Cockx, Pascal Guiraud and Gilles Hébrard
Article first published online: 27 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ceat.201400471
Since literature data on mass diffusion coefficients are actually not sufficient, a fast method is proposed to obtain oxygen diffusion coefficients from measuring the fluorescence quenching behind a bubble. Planar laser-induced fluorescence with inhibition presents a non-intrusive alternative method to accurately evaluate the gas-liquid diffusivity in a very short time.

In order to use the electrospinning process as a tool for producing materials with targeted fiber diameter for different applications, a simple method was developed for predicting the diameter of electrospun fibers. Validation experiments verified the accuracy of the model which offers an efficient method for fabricating nanofibers with a controllable and predictable fiber diameter.
- Mixing Performance of a Curved-Ribbon Impeller during Blending of Food Powders (pages 734–740)
Ixchel Gijón-Arreortúa and Alberto Tecante
Article first published online: 25 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ceat.201400682
Mixing of particulate solids is a very important process in the food industry. The mixing time and power to reach certain homogeneity during blending of corn starch and icing sugar with a horizontal segmented curved-ribbon impeller was determined. The relationship between the power number and the effective cohesion number describes the impeller performance and can serve as an engineering tool in process design.
