Outcomes Of Mid-Air Collisions Between Drops And Solid Particles

Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, scientists and engineers around the world are conducting experiments with goals to further understand and provide valuable data for different industrial processes. One such experiment is the study of drop-particle collisions, which involves examining the outcome of the impact of a particle on to a drop of liquid in mid-air. In applications such as tablet coating in the pharmaceutical industry, or the refining of heavy crude oil in fluid catalytic cracking, the information gleaned from this experiment is vital.
