Abstract

In some previous papers we have developed a model for the dynamics of liquid-liquid dispersions including some new features, among which the so- called volume scattering phenomenon, as a third mechanism of evolution, besides coalescence and breakage. So far we confined to binary breakage. The present paper analyses the more general case in which more than two droplets may be produced as the result of breakage or volume scattering. The main point is the introduction of a probability function for each breakage mode: from this point of view the paper completes our approach to the description of the dynamics of droplets dispersions which are spatially homogeneous. 1 Introduction Dispersions of a population of liquid droplets of variable size into another liquid (immiscible with the first one) are common in important indus
