Abstract:Estimates of atomization of an aqueous spray applied by aircraft were obtained by the D-max method and Quantimet image analyzer and compared. Results indicate that the D-max method is a reliable technique for making rapid field estimates of droplet VMD for aqueous as wellas oilbase tank mixes.
