CAPILLARY MOTIVE FORCES FOR LIQUID EXTRACTION IN MICROGRAVITY CONDITIONS BY SUNLIGHT

Abstract

ABSTRACT The mass-transfer induced in multiphase liquid systems by capillary motive forces of solar light is proposed as a new method for extraction of water from the binary mixtures in microgravity conditions. The surface of phase discontinuity is considered as a work substance in a self-organized heat cycle to transform chaotic thermal energy of liquid into its more ordered (synergetic) hydrodynamic form of motion. The non­equilibrium Gibbs' surface is considered as both: a source of motive forces to put a droplet in motion and a necessary element to satisfy the law of momentum conservation in dynamic boundary conditions for solving hydrodynamic problem
