Soft and Spherical: Researchers Study Dynamics of Drop Impact

Tuesday, August 15, 2017 - 10:32 in Earth & Climate

Within the study of fluid dynamics, the effect of curved, convex or compliant surfaces on the dynamics of impacting drops is still relatively unknown, despite its extreme relevance to modern-day applications, such as 3-D ink-jet printing and the delivery of pesticides on leaves. Researchers in the United Kingdom have now detailed these effects by investigating the impact of water droplets on spherical soft surfaces. They present their research in this week's Physics of Fluids.
