Abstract:

Settling profiles of polydispersed systems of particles in fluids are generated by combining distribution and settling functions. A computer program is employed for plotter presentation of normal and log normal distributions of anti-foamants, wear metals and oxides settling in synthetic lubricants under Stokesian conditions both as functions of time and temperature. Methods are examined for extension of the procedure to other systems. Generated settling profiles are useful in the prediction of storage characteristics of polydispersed systems and to establish effective sampling technique for the analysis of those systems.
