On Certain Characteristics of Ultrasound Attenuation in Suspensions of High-Molecular Oil Components

The paper presents experimental research data on the frequency and concentration dependences of additional ultrasound attenuation in mixtures of asphaltene in toluene. The results indicate that additional attenuation is determined by several different processes and has a relaxation nature. By juxtaposing the results to the data from several methods for studying similar model disperse systems, we show that changes in the concentration attenuation coefficient and its frequency dependence can provide additional information on structure transformations and phase transitions. The frequency dependence was measured in a range of 10–23 MHz. The concentration dependence was measured in the same frequency range from 0.1 to 10 wt %.
