Simulations of Surfactant Spreading

Abstract

Thin liquid films have been studied extensively because of their interesting mathematical behavior (for instance, [2]) and industrial applications. Films under the influence of surfactants, which lower surface tension in the fluid, exhibit spreading and the formation of capillary ridges. In the experiment I am considering, a ring of surfactant is placed in… (More)
