Power Ultrasonics: Applications of High-Intensity Ultrasound by Juan A Gallego-Juárez, Karl F Graff

By Juan A Gallego-Juárez, Karl F Graff

The commercial curiosity in ultrasonic processing has revived in the course of fresh years simply because ultrasonic know-how may possibly characterize a versatile “green” substitute for extra strength effective techniques. A problem within the software of high-intensity ultrasound to business processing is the layout and improvement of particular strength ultrasonic platforms for big scale operation. within the sector of ultrasonic processing in fluid and multiphase media the improvement of a brand new relatives of strength turbines with broad radiating surfaces has considerably contributed to the implementation at commercial scale of a number of functions in sectors equivalent to the meals undefined, setting, and production. half one covers basics of nonlinear propagation of ultrasonic waves in fluids and solids. It additionally discusses the fabrics and designs of energy ultrasonic transducers and units. half appears at purposes of excessive energy ultrasound in fabrics engineering and mechanical engineering, nutrition processing know-how, environmental tracking and remediation and business and chemical processing (including pharmaceuticals), drugs and biotechnology.

  • Covers the basics of nonlinear propagation of ultrasonic waves in fluids and solids.
  • Discusses the fabrics and designs of strength ultrasonic transducers and units.
  • Considers state of the art strength sonic purposes throughout a variety of industries.

In these cases, the cavitation threshold at static tension is called the heterogeneous (rather than homogeneous) nucleation threshold, because it can be attributed to the almost ubiquitous heterogeneities present in real liquids. Heterogeneities may be impurities (suspended solid particles), tiny bubbles, ionizing particles, or just the walls of the container, when the adhesion of the liquid to the walls is less than the cohesion of the liquid itself. In the context of cavitation, such heterogeneities are called cavitation nuclei (see Mørch, 2007, for a review).

41), it is seen that there are several physical mechanisms of heating during oscillatory fluid motion. The first one is energy dissipation caused by thermal High-intensity ultrasonic waves in fluids: nonlinear propagation and effects 29 conductivity between the regions of different temperatures that appear due to acoustically produced compressions and rarefactions. The second heat source comes from viscous shear stresses. The third mechanism is caused by relaxation processes, whose low-frequency action has a form of bulk viscosity.
