Mesoscopic modelling of droplets on topologically patterned substrates

Abstract:
We present a lattice Boltzmann model to describe the spreading of droplets on topologically patterned substrates. We apply it to model superhydrophobic behaviour on surfaces covered by an array of micron-scale posts. We find that the patterning results in a substantial increase in contact angle, from 110degrees to 156degrees.
