Abstract

We generalize Washburn's analytical solution for capillary flow in a horizontally oriented tube by accounting for a dynamic contact angle. We consider two general models for dynamic contact angle: the uncompensated Young force on the contact line depends on the capillary number in the form of either (1) a power law with exponent beta or (2) a power series… (More)
