Inertial rise of a meniscus on a vertical cylinder

Abstract:

We consider the inertia-dominated rise of a meniscus around a vertical circular cylinder. Previous experiments and scaling analysis suggest that the height of the meniscus, hm, grows with the time following the initiation of rise, t, like hmt ½. This is in contrast to the rise on a vertical plate, which obeys the classic capillary–inertia scaling hmt. We highlight a subtlety in the scaling analysis...
