By K.L. Mittal(eds.)

The subject of wettabilty is very very important from either basic and utilized facets. The purposes of wettability diversity from self-cleaning home windows to micro- and nanofluidics.

This e-book represents the cumulative knowledge of a contingent of world-class (researchers engaged within the area of wettability. within the previous few years there was super curiosity within the "Lotus Leaf impression" and in realizing its mechanism and the way to copy this influence for myriad purposes. the themes of superhydrophobicity, omniphobicity and superhydrophilicity are of a lot modern curiosity and those are coated extensive during this book.

Sample text

If the surface is further extended, after the maximum tension is attained, the separating weight remains constant, as with oil, spirits of wine, and other normal liquids. It begins, however, to diminish again, directly the partition is pushed back to the point of the scale at which the increase of tension ceased. The water surface can thus exist in two sharply contrasted conditions; the normal condition, in which the displacement of the partition makes no impression on the tension, and the anomalous condition, in which every increase or decrease alters the tension”.

Mortazavi et al. [29] used Cellular Potts model (CPM) to investigate CA hysteresis and decouple 1D (triple line) and 2D (contact area) effects on it. Cellular Potts model [56, 57] is a lattice-based computational modeling method to simulate the behavior of cellular structures, and has been applied to problems where the dynamics is driven by energy minimization arising from interfacial tensions between different media. In recent years, the model has been used in different studies to simulate biological tissues [57], grain growth [58], foam structure [59], coarsening [60], and drainage [61], fluid flow and reaction-advection-diffusion systems [62].
