Air Permeability Specific Surface

The air permeability specific surface of a powder material is a single-parameter measurement of the fineness of the powder. The specific surface is derived from the resistance to flow of air (or some other gas) through a porous bed of the powder. The SI units are m2·kg−1 ("mass specific surface") or m2·m−3 ("volume specific surface").

Famous quotes containing the words surface, specific and/or air:

    If the man who paints only the tree, or flower, or other surface he sees before him were an artist, the king of artists would be the photographer. It is for the artist to do something beyond this: in portrait painting to put on canvas something more than the face the model wears for that one day; to paint the man, in short, as well as his features.
    James Mcneill Whistler (1834–1903)

    I recognize in [my readers] a specific form and individual property, which our predecessors called Pantagruelism, by means of which they never take anything the wrong way that they know to stem from good, honest and loyal hearts.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    Only the gaunt fierce bird
    Flies, merciless with fear
    Lest air hold him not,
    Beats up the scaffold of space
    Sick of the world’s rot
    God’s hideous face.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
