We discuss the behavior of partially wetting liquids on a rotating cylinder using a model that takes into account the effects of gravity, viscosity, rotation, surface tension, and wettability. Such a system can be considered as a prototype for many other systems where the interplay of spatial heterogeneity and a lateral driving force in the proximity of a first- or second-order phase transition results in intricate behavior. So does a partially wetting drop on a rotating cylinder undergo a… 

Morphological transitions of sliding drops: Dynamics and bifurcations

We study fully three-dimensional droplets that slide down an incline by employing a thin-film equation that accounts for capillarity, wettability, and a lateral driving force in small-gradient (or

Bifurcation study for a surface-acoustic-wave-driven meniscus

A thin-film model for a meniscus driven by Rayleigh surface acoustic waves (SAW) is analysed, a problem closely related to the classical Landau-Levich or dragged-film problem where a plate is

Self-organized dip-coating patterns of simple, partially wetting, nonvolatile liquids

When a solid substrate is withdrawn from a bath of simple, partially wetting, nonvolatile liquid, one typically distinguishes two regimes, namely, after withdrawal the substrate is macroscopically

On the multiple solutions of coating and rimming flows on rotating cylinders

We consider steady solutions of the Stokes equations for the flow of a film of fluid on the outer or inner surface of a cylinder that rotates with its axis perpendicular to the direction of gravity.

Reduced-order modelling of thick inertial flows around rotating cylinders

A new model for the behaviour of a thick, two-dimensional layer of fluid on the surface of a rotating cylinder is presented, incorporating the effects of inertia, rotation, viscosity, gravity and

Unsteady coating flow on a rotating cylinder in the presence of an irrotational airflow with circulation

Unsteady two-dimensional coating flow of a thin film of a viscous fluid on the outside of a uniformly rotating horizontal circular cylinder in the presence of a steady two-dimensional irrotational

Gradient dynamics models for liquid films with soluble surfactant

In this paper we propose equations of motion for the dynamics of liquid films of surfactant suspensions that consist of a general gradient dynamics framework based on an underlying energy functional.

Coating flow on a rotating cylinder in the presence of an irrotational airflow with circulation

Abstract A detailed analysis of steady coating flow of a thin film of a viscous fluid on the outside of a uniformly rotating horizontal circular cylinder in the absence of surface-tension effects but

Stability and bifurcation analysis of stagnation/equilibrium points for peristaltic transport in a curved channel

The stability of equilibrium points and their bifurcations for a peristaltic transport of an incompressible viscous fluid through a curved channel have been studied when the channel width is assumed

We discuss the analogy of the behaviour of films and drops of liquid on a rotating horizontal cylinder on the one hand and substrates with regular one-dimensional wettability patterns on the other

Non-isothermal flow of a liquid film on a horizontal cylinder

We consider the flow of a viscous liquid film on the surface of a cylinder that is heated or cooled. Lubrication theory is used to study a thin film under the influence of gravity, capillary,

Two regimes of liquid film flow on a rotating cylinder

A steady flow of a thin film of a viscous incompressible liquid on a rotating cylinder (the cylinder axis is perpendicular to the direction of the force of gravity) is considered. Capillary effects

Driven large contact angle droplets on chemically heterogeneous substrates

We study the depinning and subsequent motion of two-dimensional droplets with large contact angles that are driven by a body force on flat substrates decorated with a sinusoidal wettability pattern.

Wetting transitions

When a liquid droplet is put onto a surface, two situations distinguishable by the contact angle may result. If the contact angle is zero, the droplet spreads across the surface, a situation referred

Wetting and Spreading

Wetting phenomena are ubiquitous in nature and technology. A solid substrate exposed to the environment is almost invariably covered by a layer of fluid material. In this review, the surface forces

Sliding drops across alternating hydrophobic and hydrophilic stripes.

The motion of 30 μl drops of pure water and of ethanol in water solutions, sliding over a periodic array of alternating hydrophobic and hydrophilic stripes with a large wettability contrast, is characterized.

We study the depinning of driven drops on a heterogeneous substrate using a long-wave evolution equation for the film thickness profile. The heterogeneity is incorporated into an additional pressure

We explore the bifurcation structure of a modified Cahn–Hilliard equation that describes a system that may undergo a first-order phase transition and is kept permanently out of equilibrium by a

When a film of a liquid suspension of nanoparticles or a polymer solution is deposited on a surface, it may dewet from the surface and as the solvent evaporates the solute particles/polymer can be
