Investigation of zebra mussel adhesion strength using rotating disks

Journal of Environmental Engineering New York 118(5): 708-724
Investigation of zebra mussel adhesion strength using rotating disks
Zebra mussels adhere tenaciously and gregariously to hard surfaces, thereby fouling water-processing facilities and equipment. At present, there are few data on zebra mussel adhesion strength to common substrates. A rotating disk test system (RDTS) was used to measure the adhesion strength of small mussels (~ 1 mm) to 4 materials: polyvinylchloride (PVC), polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), stainless steel (SS) and aluminium (AL).
