Similarity of desublimation processes

  • 40 Accesses


Based on a diffusional mathematical model of the processes of desublimation from binary gaseous mixtures, dimensionless similarity numbers are obtained. The effect of these numbers and the parameters contained in them on the thickness and density of a cryogenic precipitate is investigated by numerical methods.
