Description : Containing contributions from leading academic and industrial researchers, this book provides a much needed update of foam science research. The first section of the book presents an accessible summary of the theory and fundamentals of foams. This includes chapters on morphology, drainage, Ostwald ripening, coalescence, rheology, and pneumatic foams. The second section demonstrates how this theory is used in a wide range of industrial applications, including foam fractionation, froth flotation and foam mitigation. It includes chapters on suprafroths, flotation of oil sands, foams in enhancing petroleum recovery, Gas-liquid Mass Transfer in foam, foams in glass manufacturing, fire-fighting foam technology and consumer product foams. Key features: Foam fractionation is an exciting and emerging technology, starting to gain significant attention Discusses a vital topic for many industries, especially mineral processing, petroleum engineering, bioengineering, consumer products and food sector Links foam science theory to industrial applications, making it accessible to an engineering science audience Summarizes the latest developments in this rapidly progressing area of research Contains contributions from leading international researchers from academia and industry

Description : Ex-CIA covert operator Martin Dallas has never failed a mission, not in the jungles of Cambodia or the deserts of the Middle East. After Wahhabi terrorists murder his wife, Dallas leads an elite mercenary team in a decisive covert op designed to end terrorism. Financed by an American industrialist, Dallas secures suitcase nukes for his mission and prepares to strike at the heart of radical Islamic terrorists. At the same time, the CIA and a SEAL team have only hours to save tens of thousands of Americans from dying in a nuclear inferno triggered by suicide bombers who have already penetrated U.S. waters. While tracking the nuclear-armed terrorists and deploying the first of his weapons Dallas slides back into nasty habits like kidnapping, torture, and murder. When it's time to detonate his first bomb, he realizes he's progressively losing his humanity and is becoming what he seeks to destroy. As Mossad and the CIA close in on him and his bomb, Dallas must quickly decide whether he'll incinerate thousands of civilians.or salvage his soul by allowing his mission to fail.
