Babu, Ramesh S (1986) Experimental Studies on Drop Formation at the Tip of Melting Rods. In: Metallurgical and Materials Transactions B, Process Metallurgy and Materials Processing Science, 17 (3). pp. 471-477.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
Drop formation at the conical tips of melting rods has been experimentally studied using the transparent wax-alcohol/acetonitrile system. The effects of cone angle, rod diameter, immersion depth, and bath temperature on the detached drop mass have been studied over a wide range, besides recording useful qualitative information based on visual observation. The experimental results suggest that the phenomenon of drop formation at the tip of melting rods has a close parallel with the drop formation at conical tips, at least on a qualitative basis. However, the results could not be quantified owing to difficulties in characterizing the physical properties of the system, despite efforts to minimize them.
