Atomization time

The characteristic time for atomization for a low number (large viscosity) is given by
    (3.11)

where is the kinematic viscosity, is the surface tension, and is the thickness of the gate. The characteristic time for atomization for large number is given by
    (3.12)

The results obtained from these equations are different and the actual atomization time in die casting has to be between these two values.
