63rd Annual DFD Meeting

of the American Physical Society

Long Beach, California

November 21-23, 2010


Motivation

Motivation

  • Contact line dynamics

    • Rapidly growing fields of:

      • Microfluidics

      • Miniaturisation of chemical devices

    • Small lengthscale

       solid surface propertiesbecome crucial
