This project is investigating the hypothesis that in a ceramic slip system comprising apatite powder suspended in a dilute aqueous solution of a water soluble polymer, foam stability and morphology are dependent on particle surface physio-chemistry and geometry through the influence these parameters have on fluid mechanics and surface tension.
