Abstract

The evaporation of liquid drops on solid substrates is a common phenomenon. Yet, the complexity of the underlying physics has constrained previous studies to spherically-symmetric configurations. Through simulations, theory and experiments, this talk will show and reason out dramatic dependence of evaporation dynamics on geometry resulting in breakage of symmetry.

This seminar is hosted by Dr David Fairhurst/Dr Christopher Castleton.
