Bernoulli catenary and elasto-capillary effect in partially wet fibrous materials

Abstract

When a wetting liquid wicks into a fibrous material, it causes the material to deform. In this paper we discuss the elastocapillary effect that leads to spontaneous internal stresses in the materials. The elasto-capillary effect produced by menisci in pores can be identified through a specific stress distribution in the fibrous matrix. We show that the… (More)
