A continuum model for the flow of thin liquid films over intermittently chemically patterned surfaces

Abstract:

It is known from both experiments and molecular dynamics simulations that chemically patterning a solid surface has an effect on the flow of an adjacent liquid. This fact is in stark contrast with predictions of classical fluid mechanics where the no-slip boundary condition is insensitive to the chemistry of the solid substrate. It has been shown that the influence on the flow caused by a steep change in the wettability of the solid substrate can be described in the framework of continuum mec...
