Wetting and minimal surfaces.
It is argued that perturbation theory is quasilocal--i.e., that all geometric length scales of the fluid container decouple from the short-wavelength deformations of the contact line.
Surface forces and wetting features in drops and capillaries
This dissertation aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate.
Short-time dynamics of partial wetting.
This work identifies that even in the presence of a contact line, the initial wetting is dominated by inertia rather than viscosity, and proposes a model, consistent with the experimental results, in which the surface spreading is regulated by the generation of capillary waves.
When and how surface structure determines the dynamics of partial wetting
The motion of a three phase contact line, as in a droplet spreading over a dry surface, is ubiquitous in nature and common in technology, but is still not well understood. As has been recently shown,
In a microscopic scale or microgravity environment, interfaces in wetting phenomena are usually modeled by surfaces with constant mean curvature (CMC surfaces). Usually, the condition regarding the
Communications: Wall free capillarity and pendant drop removal.
The results indicate that superhydrophilic perforated surface can be used as an effective way for the removal of small droplets adhering to the inner walls of microchannel systems.
Capillary Surfaces Modeling Liquid Drops on Wetting Phenomena
The aim of the present work is to relate the shape of a liquid drop in some contexts on capillarity and wetting with the surfaces that are mathematical models of these droplets. When a liquid drop is

An analytical model is proposed for the Young-Laplace equation of two-dimensional (2D) drops under gravity. Inspired by the pioneering work of Landau & Lifshitz (1987), we derive analytical
Simple Approach for Spreading Dynamics of Polymeric Fluids
The spreading of an axisymmetric drop on partially and completely wetted substrates is investigated from the theoretical and experimental point of view. In particular, novel physical models
