Identities for droplets with circular footprint on tilted surfaces

It is argued how the identities are useful in two respects: to replace some unknown values in the Young–Laplace equation by their expressions obtained from the identities, and to estimate the error for approximate analytical or numerical solutions without any reference to an exact solution.

Generation of nonparaxial self-accelerating beams using pendant droplets

We propose and demonstrate the effectual generation and control of nonparaxial self-accelerating beams by using UV-resin pendant droplets. We show that the geometrical shape of the hanging droplets

Optimizing fog harvesting by biomimicry

Inspired by the stenocara beetle, we study an ideal flat surface composed of a regular array of hydrophilic circular patches in a hydrophobic matrix on an incline of tilt α with respect to the

An Introduction to Wettability and Wetting Phenomena

An Analytical Two-Dimensional Linearized Droplet Shape Model for Combined Tangential and Normal Body Forces

In view of emerging research on forced wetting under complex applied forces, a simple model for a droplet shape evolution is developed here. In particular, the model refers to droplet spreading under



Contact angles of a drop pinned on an incline.

For a drop on an incline with small tilt angle α, when the contact line is a circle of radius r, the Furmidge model is revisited in this way for a large range of contact angles, and the Bond number B=ρgR^{2}/γ is derived, where R is the radius of the spherical cap at zero gravity.

Comparison of the Lateral Retention Forces on Sessile, Pendant, and Inverted Sessile Drops.

The retention force on a drop depends not only on whether it is placed on top or on bottom of a surface, but also on the history of drop deposition, since such history affects the width, the shape, and the contact angles of the drop.

Comparison of the lateral retention forces on sessile and pendant water drops on a solid surface

We present a simple experiment that demonstrates how a water drop hanging from a Plexiglas surface (pendant drop) experiences a lateral retention force that is comparable to, and in some cases larger
