A two-phase model for evaporating solvent-polymer mixtures

Abstract:

Evaporating solvent-polymer mixtures play an important role in a number of modern industrial applications. We focus on developing a two-phase model for a fluid composed of a volatile solvent and a non-volatile polymer in a thin-film geometry. The model accounts for density differences between the phases as well as evaporation at a fluid-air interface. We use the model in one dimension to explore the interplay between evaporation and compositional buoyancy; the former promotes the growth of a ...
