### Straining flow of a micellar surfactant solution

Abstract:

We present a mathematical model describing the distribution of monomer and micellar surfactant in a steady straining flow beneath a fixed free surface. The model includes adsorption of monomer surfactant at the surface and a single-step reaction whereby $n$ monomer molecules combine to form each micelle. The equations are analysed asymptotically and numerically and the results are compared with experiments. Previous studies of such systems have often assumed equilibrium between the monomer a...
