Surface tension

View this topic in
Surface tension is a property of the surface of a liquid that allows it to resist an external force. It is revealed, for example, in floating of some objects on the surface of water, even though they are denser than water, and in the ability of some insects and even reptiles to run on the water surface. This property is caused by cohesion of like molecules, and is responsible for many of the behaviors of liquids. (Wikipedia.org)

Enhancement of underfill capillary flow in flip-chip packaging by means of the inertia effect

Chao-Ming Lin Advanced Packaging, IEEE Transactions on, 2004

This paper describes how the use of inertia forces induced by the rotation of a working disk may be adopted to increase the fill rate of the flip-chip packaging process and thereby reduce the process cycle time. It is shown how the driving forces resulting from the inertia effect are determined by the Weber number. The constant and varying contact ...


Analysis of droplet mixing and splitting operations by a low actuation voltage electrowetting-on-dielectric device

Samad, M.F.; Kouzani, A.Z.; Hosain, M.K.; Magniez, K.; Islam, M.S.; Kaynak, A.; Das, S.; Zainal Alam, M.N.H.; Amiri Moghadam, A.A. Engineering Technology and Technopreneuship (ICE2T), 2014 4th International Conference on, 2014

This paper presents an electrowetting-on-dielectric (EWOD)-based droplet mixing and splitting device. In the proposed method, the droplet is sandwiched between the bottom and top substrate plates of the EWOD device. A dielectric layer of Parylene C and a thin coating of a hydrophobic Teflon layer are used to create the EWOD device. The device actuates the droplets by applying an ...


A comprehensive model for high pressure growth of InP crystals

We have developed a comprehensive model that accounts for oscillatory, laminar and turbulent flows caused by buoyancy and surface tension forces; forced convection due to crucible and crystal rotations; and complex thermal boundary conditions. The model also accounts for magnetohydrodynamics and sophisticated radiation heat exchange. Thermal elastic stress in the InP crystal is simultaneously calculated using the temperature distribution and ...


Radial modulation of single microbubbles

Emmer, M.; Vos, H.J.; Versluis, M.; Jong, N. Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control, IEEE Transactions on, 2009

Radial modulation imaging is a new promising technique to improve contrast- enhanced ultrasound images. The method is based on dual-frequency insonation of contrast agent microbubbles. A low-frequency (LF) pulse is used to modulate the responses of the microbubbles to a high-frequency (HF) imaging pulse. Inverting the LF pulse induces amplitude and phase differences in the HF response of contrast agent ...


Calculation of Disjoining Pressure for Lubricant Films Via Molecular Simulation

Izumisawa, Satoru; Jhon, Myung S. Magnetics, IEEE Transactions on, 2006

Disjoining pressure of polymeric liquid films on solid wall and surface tension of the films suspended in vapor are examined via molecular dynamics simulations. The disjoining pressure is calculated from the augmented Young- Laplace equation, which is used to reproduce a fluid bridge between two walls in a simulation cell. Higher surface energy of the wall increases the disjoining pressure ...
