Wetting and Spreading Dynamics explains wetting phenomena whilst a liquid partly or thoroughly wets strong or immiscible liquid surfaces. Written for either newbies and skilled researchers within the box, the ebook makes use of ideas and terminology from colloid technology, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics to resolve equilibrium and dynamic difficulties in wetting and spreading.
This publication explains how floor forces performing at the three-phase touch line confirm equilibrium, hysteresis touch angles, and all different equilibrium and kinetics good points of beverages while involved with solids or different immiscible beverages. It examines the interplay of floor forces, capillary forces, and houses of the transition sector among the majority liquid (drop or meniscus) and reliable substrate.
Detailing the kinetics of spreading over either porous and nonporous substrates, the booklet observes how floor forces eliminate “singularity” on the relocating three-phase touch line within the latter. The authors introduce novel common spreading legislation that follow to the spreading over porous substrates, that have been experimentally confirmed. additionally they examine the effect of surfactants on kinetics of spreading over hydrophobic substrates, spontaneous imbibition into hydrophobic or in part hydrophilic porous our bodies.
Drawing jointly conception and experimental facts whereas offering over one hundred fifty figures to demonstrate the recommendations, Wetting and Spreading Dynamics discusses open questions, demanding situations, and destiny instructions for examine and myriad purposes of equilibrium and dynamics of wetting.
