Surface tension of high melting metals by PD/SD combined method
D. Giuranno, E. Ricci, R. Nowak and N. Sobczak
A new combined method using two methodologies in one test (i.e. the pendant drop and sessile drop) by an advanced experimental complex that has been designed for investigations of high temperature capillarity phenomena, is presented.
The surface tension data obtained by the application of a such new procedure on pure metals are presented here and discussed in the framework of the available literature data in order to confirm the validity of the new procedure proposed.
Keywords: Surface tension; high temperature; liquid metals; pendant drop and sessile drop combined method.
