Drops bouncing off macro-textured superhydrophobic surfaces

10 Aug 2016 Moqaddam Ali Mazloomi Chikatamarla Shyam S. Karlin Ilya

Recent experiments with droplets impacting a macro-textured superhydrophobic surfaces revealed new regimes of bouncing with a remarkable reduction of the contact time. We present here a comprehensive numerical study that reveals the physics behind these new bouncing regimes and quantify the role played by various external and internal forces that effect the dynamics of a drop impacting a complex surface...
