Methods of Measuring Surface Tension and Wettability
The methodology of the measurement of surface tension and wettability at high pressures does not differ in principle from methods of analogous measurements at atmospheric pressure [1–3, 131. Therefore, the performance of these measurements at high pressures consists of reproduction of known methods under these conditions. The difficulties which arise in performing these measurements are much more closely connected with the solution of common problems of investigation at high pressures than with the specific nature of the measurements of surface tension and wettability being performed.
