The characteristic time for atomization for a low number (large viscosity)
is given by
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
The results obtained from these equations are different and the
actual atomization time in die casting has to be between these two values.
