Sedimentation Procedures for Determining Particle Size Distribution


The theory underlying the application of sedimentation procedures for particle size distribution is presented. Modifications of the theory to satisfy the several types of sedimentation techniques are described. Consideration is given to the various experimental techniques, particularly to the advantages and disadvantages of each. Experimental results are presented for the entire subsieve range.
