It can be explained from the microstructures that after two days of emulsification the collision between the droplets was increased in higher water contents and so, the coalescence process was dominated (stored emulsions).
Being exothermic, its decomposition tends to raise the temperature of the foaming system, and hence also tends to exacerbate bubble coalescence.
In the case of symmetrical problems, unlike the other modified decision trees (game and scenario trees), the proposed model allows for the use of the coalescence procedure.
Zheng said that it has been assumed that coalescence events would result in some crystals being much larger than others, a bad thing in that the physical properties of nanocrystals are so dependent upon size and shape that for many applications it is critical that monodispersed nanocrystals be produced during synthesis.
Spielman and Levenspiel (1965) were the first to employ an MC approach to study the effect of particle coalescence in a two-phase particulate reactive system in well-mixed reactors.

On the phonological level, the language presents an interesting case of infix allomorphy and vowel coalescence.
The paste achieves a consistently high degree of coalescence upon reflow During printing and assembly, the benefits of specifying MP218 are low paste wastage--the result of high tack life and an open time of more than 24 hrs--and resistance to component movement during high-speed placement, due to its high initial tack force, measured at 1.
