TOPOLOGICAL MODELS OF THE FLOW AND KINETICS OF COAGULATION-CRYSTALLIZATION STRUCTURE FORMATION OF DISPERSE SYSTEMSN. B. Ur'eva and L. E. Trofimovab UDC 532.135:517 This paper analyzes the processes of structure formation of disperse systems under dynamic and static conditions in terms of synergetics and the theory of catastrophes. The efficiency of using these methodological approaches together with adopted instrumental methods of investigating the properties of structured dispersions is shown. aInstitute of Physical Chemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow; bOdessa State Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture.
