Levitated droplet oscillations: effect of internal flow
Bojarevics, Valdis and Pericleous, Koulis A. (2009) Levitated droplet oscillations: effect of internal flow. Magnetohydrodynamics, 45 (3). pp. 475-486. ISSN 0024-998XFull text not available from this repository.
The numerical model for electrically conducting liquid droplets levitated in AC magnetic field is applied to demonstrate various factors affecting the accuracy of material property value measurements in microgravity conditions. The included effects are the electromagnetic force induced stirring and the resulting turbulence, the thermo-capillary convection, and the droplet rotation. The results are validated against available analytical solutions.
