6. Overview • Background • The virtual surface method • Dynamic contact angle model • Results and Analysis • Future work

7. Background Small-scale liquid-solid Interactions Q: Why small water behaves naturally different from large water? A1: Surface Tension (water: 72 dynes/cm at 25º C). A2: Viscosity (water: 1.0020 × 10-3 N·s/m2 at 20º C). Lake view ( >1 meter) Water drops (in millimeters)

8. Background • To calculate surface tension force: : Tension coefficient (always positive) : Mean curvature : Normal (always pointing outward) (Laplace’s Law) Uniform curvature Water sphere: photo taken on the International Space Station. Courtesy NASA

9. Background Stable contact angle satisfies Young’s Relation:

10. Background • Our work is based on fluid simulation using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). • Solve the Navier-Stokes equations for the velocity field • Use the particle Level-Set method

11. Overview • Background • The virtual surface method • Dynamic contact angle model • Results and Analysis • Future work

12. The virtual surface method • Solution: • Place a virtual surface beneath the solid plane • Estimate the surface tension using the new combined surface • Problem: • Real World: a stable contact front with contact angle • Simulation: Curvature at contact front is positive, thus always pushes inward: Air Liquid Virtual Liquid Solid Virtual Surface

13. The virtual surface method • Create a virtual surface • Estimate curvature on the contact front • A kink cause the curvature to “push” the fluid front Air Air Liquid Virtual Liquid Solid Virtual Liquid Solid Virtual Surface Virtual Surface Advancing to right Receding to left

15. Overview • Background • The virtual surface method • Dynamic contact angle model • Results and Analysis • Future work

16. Dynamic contact angle model Contact angle hysteresis: Small water drops can stay on a vertical plane, while large water drops will flow down.

17. Dynamic contact angle model • Stable contact angles bounds: • Advancing • Receding • a valid stable contact angle: • Final pressure P is: Pa: pressure calculated using Pr: pressure calculated using

18. Dynamic contact angle model • Dry/Wet conditions • wetting history map • Contact angles based on surface wetness (wet advancing angle smaller than the dry advancing angle) Dusted region is dry, transparent region is wet.

19. Overview • Background • The virtual surface method • Dynamic contact angle model • Results and Analysis • Future work

23. Results and Analysis • Video (playback speed 10 times slower than real world speed)

24. Results and Analysis • Grid resolution: 400×400×400 • Simulation speed: 20 minutes per frame • Each sequence has 500 frames • The total running time is: 20 × 500 / (60 × 24) ≈7 days

25. Results and Analysis • Why is it relatively computational expensive? • High grid solution (400×400×400) • Large viscosity effects • Implicit Euler method • The condition number of the linear system increased.
