  • This paper describes a biconical bob oscillatory interfacial rheometer designed to measure the dynamic viscoelastic response of a liquid-liquid interface subjected to a small amplitude oscillatory shear stress. This instrument is used to examine the rheological behavior of interfaces in the presence of surfactants, especially macromolecular types. Rheological parameters are calculated from a hydrodynamic analysis incorporating a linear viscoelastic interfacial rheological model. The general response of this instrument is compared with the oscillatory deep channel interfacial rheometer which is also capable of similar measurements. Measurements of interfacial viscoelasticity for the same liquid-liquid system with the two rheometers, the biconical bobmore » and the deep channel rheometers, are shown to be comparable. This study demonstrates the intrinsic nature and, therefore, the instrument independent of these dynamic interfacial rheological properties. Accurate measurements of interfacial shear viscoelasticity can be carried out over a wide range of systems by combining measurements with the oscillatory interfacial rheometers. The limitations and regime of usefulness of these instruments are discussed.« less
  • An interfacial rheometer to measure the dynamic response of a liquid--liquid interface subjected to a small amplitude oscillatory shear stress is described. Experiments are conducted in a deep channel rheometer fitted with an oscillatory floor. This instrument is used to examine the rheological behavior of interfaces in the presence of surfactants. Rheological parameters are calculated from a hydrodynamic analysis incorporating interfacial rheological models. It is demonstrated here that an adsorbed layer of macromolecular surfactants at an oil--water interface is viscoelastic even though the adjacent phases are Newtonian.
  • We have used Bragg rod x-ray diffraction combined with a direct method of phase retrieval to extract atomic resolution electron-density maps of a complementary series of heteroepitaxial III-V semiconductor samples. From the three-dimensional electron-density maps we derive the monolayer spacings, the chemical compositions, and the characteristics of the bonding for all atomic planes in the film and across the film-substrate interface. InAs films grown on GaSb(001) under two different As conditions (using dimer or tetramer forms) both showed conformal roughness and mixed GaAs/InSb interfacial bonding character. The As tetramer conditions favored InSb bonding at the interface while, in the casemore » of the dimer, the percentages corresponding to GaAs and InSb bonding were equal within the experimental error. The GaSb film grown on InAs(001) displayed significant In and As interdiffusion and had a relatively large fraction of GaAs-like bonds at the interface.« less
  • A shear-lag analysis is presented for estimating sliding friction stress at fiber-matrix interfaces in ceramic-matrix composites using the single-fiber push-out test. The analysis includes an approximate correction for the increased interfacial compression and, therefore, the interfacial friction stress arising from the transverse (Poisson) expansion of the fibers subjected to the compressive load. An exponential decrease of the interfacial shear stress along the fiber length is predicted. This result is similar to the results of a finite-element analysis reported in the literature. The analysis also provides a basis for the experimental determination of a coefficient of interfacial friction (..mu..) and amore » residual interfacial compression (sigma/sub O/). It is shown that the sliding friction stress (tau/sub f/=..mu..sigma/sub O/) can be overestimated if the transverse expansion of the fibers is not taken into account.« less
  • A simple model is presented in order to explore the influence of interfacial stress, interfacial energy, and surface stress on the characteristics of phase equilibria in stressed, two-phase binary alloys. Two different system geometries are employed: concentric spheres and thin plates. The conditions for thermodynamic equilibrium are solved and equations of state for each geometry are obtained in terms of the phase fraction, alloy composition, system dimension, and several dimensionless materials parameters. Elastic stress introduces new equilibrium states that are further modified by the interfacial quantities. Those conditions for which interfacial quantities can induce significant changes in the equilibrium phasemore » fraction and phase compositions are identified.« less
