Linear stability of particle-laden thin films


Recent experiments [Zhou, Dupuy, Bertozzi, and Hosoi, Phys. Rev. Lett., 94 (2005)] of particle-laden film flow on an incline demonstrate new behavior distinct from the well-known clear fluid case, including the formation of a particle-rich ridge which can stabilize the advancing contact line with respect to “fingering” perturbations. We consider a model… (More)
