Mass Transport by Waves on the Bath Metal Interface in Electrolysis Cell

This paper reviews the literature on the works already done on the study of surface waves, interface waves and Stokes drift (movement of waves on the surface of a fluid is always accompanied by a displacement of the particles in the wave propagation direction) and presents estimates of the mass transport induced by these waves for the case of the metal bath interface for material, such as rafts of alumina and solidified bath, particles of undissolved alumina, cryolite snow.
