Part of the Sagamore Army Materials Research Conference Proceedings book series (SAMC, volume 15)


Problems associated with the size analysis of powders in the range 0.1 μ to 5 μ are discussed. Special attention is focussed on felvation and centrifugal analysis with respect to shape-dependent information which could be obtained from these techniques.
