In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
An investigation into aggregate breakage has been carried out using suspensions of uniform polystyrene spheres destabilised by addition of salt or polymer. A controlled flow apparatus was used to expose the suspended aggregates to turbulent pipe flow of variable intensity and duration. Analysis of aggregate size distribution was carried out using the HIAC light obscuration technique. [Continues.]
