A Multiple-Scale Analysis of Evaporation Induced Marangoni Convection

This paper considers the stability of thin liquid layers of binary mixtures of a volatile (solvent) species and a nonvolatile (polymer) species. Evaporation leads to a depletion of the solvent near the liquid surface. If surface tension increases for lower solvent concentrations, sufficiently strong compositional gradients can lead to Bénard–Marangoni-type convection that is similar to the kind which is observed in films that are heated from below. The onset of the instability is investigated… CONTINUE READING
