Abstract A drop placed under a solid thin film causes it to bulge due to the action of liquid surface tension, Laplace pressure, difference in surface tension on two sides of the film, and gravity. Deformation is resisted by solid surface tension, bending, and in-plane stretching. For sufficiently thin films and small drops, the film mainly carries tension and the deformed configuration can be obtained simply by force balance of tensions at the contact line. In this work, we examine more… CONTINUE READING
