The Determination of the Surface Tensions of Liquid-Iron, Nickel and Iron-Nickel Alloys using the electromagnetic Oscillating Droplet Technique

By HK Lee, MG Frohberg and JP Hajra


An oscillating droplet method combined with electromagnetic levitation has been applied to determine the surface tensions of liquid pure iron, nickel and iron-nickel alloys as a function of the temperature. The natural frequency of the oscillating droplet is evaluated using a Fourier analyser. The theoretical background of this method and the experimental set-up were described, and the influence of magnetic field strength was also discussed. The experimental results were compared with those of other investigators and interpreted using theoretical models (Butler's equation, subregular and perfect solution model for the surface phase)
