Magmatic Fragmentation ScienceDirect

2015-1-1  Fragmentation transforms magma from a continuous liquid phase with dispersed gas bubbles (+/− crystals) to a gas phase with dispersed magma fragments (pyroclasts). The explosive force of magmatic eruptions is generated during fragmentation, where the potential energy of expanding magma is converted to the kinetic energy of the gas phase and individual pyroclasts and then enhanced by

Fragmentation of wind‐blown snow crystals Comola 2017

2017-4-26  Fragmentation of snow crystals blown by wind might explain the remarkable differences in size between snowflakes and blowing snow particles [Gunn and Marshall, 1958; Schmidt, 1982]. Snowfall crystals are relatively large, often in the range of 1–5 mm depending on precipitation intensity, and generally follow an exponential size distribution

Electrical fragmentation as a novel route for the

On the Dynamic Fragmentation and Lubrication of Coseismic

2018-10-31  The dynamic fragmentation of rock slope due to extremely high overloading stress would generate a layer of gradually fining and rounded solid particles at the base. These particles usually exhibit a much lower macroscopic shear strength than angular‐shaped particles at a given confining pressure (Lambe & Whitman, 1969 ), which could

This report provides the details of the widely adopted methods of mining, both surface and underground and to have an overview of all the operations that are made to explore the economic mineral

Microplastics Generation: Onset of Fragmentation of

2017-3-28  The fragmentation of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) films from single-use supermarket plastic bags to microplastics under laboratory-simulated onshore and nearshore conditions was investigated for a period of 6 months. The weathering process of the plastic strips either on beach sand or in seawater under direct natural sunlight was monitored by tensile strength, molecular weight

Abiotic Protein Fragmentation by Manganese Oxide

2016-3-14  The ability of plants and microorganisms to take up organic nitrogen in the form of free amino acids and oligopeptides has received increasing attention over the last two decades, yet the mechanisms for the formation of such compounds in soil environments remain poorly understood. We used Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopies to
