We investigated the cluster-size distribution of the residual nonwetting phase in a sintered glass-bead porous medium at two-phase flow conditions, by means of micro-computed-tomography (μCT) imaging with pore-scale resolution. Cluster-size distribution functions and cluster volumes were obtained by image analysis for a range of injected pore volumes under(More)
Flow-SANS experiments were performed on viscoelastic aqueous solutions of erucyl bis(hydroxyethyl) methylammonium chloride in the presence of potassium chloride. This cationic surfactant has the ability to form very long and flexible wormlike micelles upon addition of salt. The effects of the key-parameters-shear rate, temperature, surfactant and salt(More)
The effect of adding an alcohol ethoxylate nonionic surfactant (C(18)E(18)) to aqueous solutions of a cationic surfactant, erucyl bis(hydroxyethyl) methylammonium chloride (EHAC,CH(3)(CH(2))(7)(CH)(2)(CH(2))(12)N(+)-(CH(2)CH(2)OH)(2)CH(3)Cl(-)), was studied using small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), steady-state rheology, and cryo-transmission electron(More)
To understand the strong viscoelastic response showed by aqueous solutions of erucylbis(hydroxyethyl)methylammonium chloride (EHAC) in the presence of potassium chloride (KCl), steady-state rheology, small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), and cryogenic transmission electron microscopy (cryo-TEM) experiments were performed. This cationic surfactant has the(More)
Small-angle neutron scattering studies were used to investigate the effect of adding an alcohol ethoxylate nonionic surfactant (d-C12E20) to aqueous solutions of a cationic surfactant, erucyl bis(hydroxyethyl) methylammonium chloride (EHAC), with and without salt (KCl). The systematic use of contrast-matching, by alternately highlighting or hiding one of(More)
Since the frequency spectrum of a voice signal is directly dependent on the velocity of sound, studies of speech spectra include the problem of calculating the speed of sound in the gas mixture being used. A computer program written in BASIC has been developed to calculate the speed of sound relative to air in various diving gas mixtures. In addition, a set(More)
