Discussion on Hamaker Constant
out of 5 stars
09 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen Beaudoin, Ravi Jaiswal, Caitlin Kilroy
The Hamaker constant is a force constant used for describing the van der Waals (vdW) force. The magnitude of the Hamaker constant reflects the strength of the vdW force between two particles, or between a particle and a substrate. It depends on the material properties of both the interacting...
Basic Forces in Particle Adhesion
28 Jan 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen Beaudoin
Particle adhesion to surfaces is important in a wide range of industrial applications. This brief presentation is designed to provide an introduction to the forces that influence particle adhesion in air or liquid environments. It is not designed to provide information at great depth or...
