For partial wetting, motion of the triple liquid-gas-solid contact line is influenced by heterogeneities of the solid surface. This influence can be strong in the case of inertial (e.g., oscillation) flows where the line can be pinned or move intermittently. A model that takes into account both surface defects and fluid inertia is proposed. The viscous(More)

The dynamics of the triple gas-liquid-solid contact line is analysed for the case where the gas is the saturated vapour corresponding to the liquid, like in the vapour bubble in boiling. It is shown that even small superheating (with respect to the saturation temperature) causes evaporation of the adsorption liquid film and the true triple contact is(More)
The dynamics of the triple gas-liquid-solid contact line is analysed for the case where the gas is the saturated vapour corresponding to the liquid, like in the vapour bubble in boiling. The liquid wets partially the solid heater. It is shown that even small superheating (with respect to the saturation temperature) causes evaporation of the adsorption film(More)
