The article reports droplet evaporation kinetics on inclined substrates. Comprehensive experimental and theoretical analyses of the droplet evaporation behaviour for different substrate declination, wettability and temperatures have been presented. Sessile droplets with substrate declination exhibit distorted shape and evaporate at different rates compared to droplets on the same horizontal substrate and is characterized by more often changes in regimes of evaporation. The slip stick and jump… 
Thermo-capillarity in microfluidic binary systems via phase modulated sinusoidal thermal stimuli
In this article, we have explored the theoretical aspects of thermo-capillarity driven hydrodynamics at the interface of an immiscible binary-fluid system within a microfluidic domain. The top and
Droplet evaporation on inclined substrates
Drying of droplets on inclined surfaces is relevant to applications such as ink-jet printing, spray coating, and crime-scene reconstruction. We develop a lubrication-theory based model to investigate
Substrate concavity influenced evaporation mechanisms of sessile droplets
In this article, we probe the morphing of the evaporation kinetics of sessile droplets on curved hydrophilic and superhydrophobic (SH) surfaces. Concave grooves of different radii have been employed,
Local evaporation flux of deformed liquid drops
Escaping of the liquid molecules from their liquid bulk into the vapour phase at the vapourliquid interface is controlled by the vapour diffusion process, which nevertheless hardly senses the


Competing advection decelerates droplet evaporation on heated surfaces.
In this article we report the atypical and anomalous evaporation kinetics of saline sessile droplets on surfaces with elevated temperatures. In a previous we showed that saline sessile droplets
Soluto-thermo-hydrodynamics influenced evaporation kinetics of saline sessile droplets
Effects of Substrate Heating and Wettability on Evaporation Dynamics and Deposition Patterns for a Sessile Water Droplet Containing Colloidal Particles.
A first-order model corroborates the liquid-gas interface temperature measurements and variation in the measured ring profile with the substrate temperature, and proposes a regime map for predicting three types of deposits-namely, ring, thin ring with inner deposit, and inner deposit-for varying substrate temperature.
Evaporation of inclined water droplets
It is found that complete evaporation time of an inclined droplet becomes longer as gravitational influence by inclination becomes stronger, which makes the evapsoration rate of an inclination droplet to be slow.
A Water Droplet Pinning and Heat Transfer Characteristics on an Inclined Hydrophobic Surface
The findings revealed that the hydrophobic surface give rise to large amount of air being trapped within texture, which generates Magdeburg like forces between the droplet meniscus and the textured surface while contributing to droplet pinning at extreme inclination angles.
Thermocapillary convection inside a stationary sessile water droplet on a horizontal surface with an imposed temperature gradient
Abstract The present study reports the fluid flow inside a stationary water droplet placed on a hydrophobic surface subjected to a temperature gradient. The development of temperature gradient

A classical evaporation model is used to accurately predict the droplet evolution throughout the three modes, for both flat and micropillared silicon surfaces, and it is believed that this framework can also be extended to model theevaporation of nanofluids and the coffee-ring effect.
Evaporation of a Sessile Droplet on a Substrate
The evaporation of a sessile droplet with a pinned contact line is investigated experimentally, by analytic theory and by computation using the finite element method (FEM). Because of the low value
Dynamics of Contact Line Pinning and Depinning of Droplets Evaporating on Microribs.
The contact line dynamics of evaporating droplets deposited on a set of parallel microribs is analyzed with the use of a recently developed entropic lattice Boltzmann model for two-phase flow and it is demonstrated that the energy barrier required for the contact line to depin can be enlarged by increasing the spacing or the rib height.
