Surrogate Models for Studying the Wettability of Nanoscale Natural Rough Surfaces Using Molecular Dynamics

A molecular modeling methodology is presented to analyze the wetting behavior of natural surfaces exhibiting roughness at the nanoscale. Using atomic force microscopy, the surface topology of a

Phase-field simulation for the formation of porous microstructures due to phase separation in polymer solutions on substrates with different wettabilities

The porous microstructure has been widely observed in a variety of polymer solutions that have been broadly applied in many industry fields. Phase separation is one of the common mechanisms for the

A numerical solution to the effects of surface roughness on water–coal contact angle

It can be concluded that the influence of the rough interface on the contact angle of the droplets is in accordance with the change rule described in the Wenzel model.

Numerical investigation of a fully coupled micro-macro model for mineral dissolution and precipitation

Mineral dissolution and precipitation alter a porous medium’s structure and its bulk properties. Due to the medium’s heterogeneity and lack in dynamic pore-scale measurements, there has been an

Elementary Pore Network Models Based on Complex Analysis Methods (CAM): Fundamental Insights for Shale Field Development

This paper presents insights on flow in porous media from a model tool based on complex analysis methods (CAM) that is grid-less and therefore can visualize fluid flow through pores at high

Application of percolation, critical-path, and effective-medium theories for calculation of two-phase relative permeability.

While the effective medium approximation poorly matches the pore network simulator, the critical path approximation is shown to match the result of the oil relative permeability, indicating that percolation-theory based predictions have the potential to become an efficient tool for upscaling by computing two-phase flow properties for numerous porosity subdomains.

An investigation is made into the moving contact line dynamics of a Cahn–Hilliard–van der Waals (CHW) diffuse mean-field interface. The interface separates two incompressible viscous fluids and can

Regular Article: Calculation of Two-Phase Navier–Stokes Flows Using Phase-Field Modeling

Phase-field models provide a way to model fluid interfaces as having finite thickness. This can allow the computation of interface movement and deformation on fixed grids. This paper applies

Wetting theory for small droplets on textured solid surfaces

It is found that the conventional theory predicts the contact angle at the global minimum if the droplet size is about 40 times or larger than the characteristic scale of the surface roughness, regardless of wetting modes.

A phase-field method for the direct simulation of two-phase flows in pore-scale media using a non-equilibrium wetting boundary condition

Advances in pore-scale imaging (e.g., μ-CT scanning), increasing availability of computational resources, and recent developments in numerical algorithms have started rendering direct pore-scale
