Non-wetting droplets in capillaries of circular cross-section: Scaling function

Makuch, Karol; Gorce, Jean-Baptiste; Garstecki, Piotr


Steady motion of long, non-wetting droplets carried by a surrounding liquid in a circular capillary has been the subject of many experimental, theoretical, and numerical simulation studies. Theoretical approaches, even after the application of lubrication approximation in hydrodynamic equations and after neglecting inertia and gravity effects, still lead to a numerical procedure to determine the speed of a droplet or the thickness of the film between a droplet and the wall of the capillary....[Show more]
