A geometry-based model for spreading drops applied to drops on a silicon wafer and a swellable polymer brush film

10 Mar 2020 Fricke Mathis Fickel Beatrice Hartmann Maximilian Gründing Dirk Biesalski Markus Bothe Dieter

We investigate the dynamics of spreading in a regime where the shape of the drop is close to a spherical cap. The latter simplification is applicable in the late (viscous) stage of spreading for highly viscous drops with a diameter below the capillary length... (read more)
