Abstract

Previous investigations had shown that perikinetic coagulation under microgravity conditions is faster than coagulation under terrestrial conditions. The results can be understood by calculating the interaction forces between doublets of particles, applying the DLVO theory to spheres with a certain degree of surface roughness in combination with convection flows in the continuous phase, caused by a temperature gradient.
