Gradient dynamics formulations of thin film equations
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractThe course starts with a brief review of a number of experiments on dewetting and evaporating thin films/drops of simple and complex liquids. Then the concept of a gradient dynamics description of the evolution of interface-dominated films and drops on solid substrates is introduced starting with the case of a single layer of simple non-volatile liquid, and advancing towards the formulation for films of mixtures.
The second part of the course uses the obtained models to investigate depinning transitions and deposition patterns in a number of different settings that can all be described by the introduced evolution equations.
