Babu, Ramesh (1986) Studies on drop formation at conical tips - a theoretical approach. In: Proceedings of International Conference on `Progress in metallurgical research: fundamental and applied aspects, IIT-Kanpur, p. 279-87, pp. 4918-4927.

Relative to electroslag refining, the equil. of a pendent liq. drop forming at the conical tip of a rod immersed in a 2nd fluid is analyzed. The model enables the calcn. of max. drop vol. and follows the changing sequence of drop profiles during formation. The effect of interfacial tension, d. difference between the drop and the surrounding fluid, rod diam., and cone geometry on max. drop vol. is predicted. Above a crit. diam. of the rod, the max. drop vol. is independent of the rod diam.
