Water nucleation : wave tube experiments and theoretical considerations

  title={Water nucleation : wave tube experiments and theoretical considerations},
  author={Vincent Holten},
This work is an experimental and theoretical study of the condensation of water. Condensation consists of nucleation – the formation of droplets – and the subsequent growth of those droplets. In our expansion tube setup, these processes are separated in time with the nucleation pulse principle, in the following manner. First, a mixture of water vapour and a carrier gas is cooled down by means of an adiabatic expansion. Nucleation then takes place during a period of constant pressure… CONTINUE READING
