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)

Aspiration of human neutrophils: analysis of non-Newtonian fluid models

J. L. Drury; M. Dembo Proceedings of the First Joint BMES/EMBS Conference. 1999 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 21st Annual Conference and the 1999 Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society (Cat. N, 1999

The dynamics of human neutrophils during micropipet aspiration have been rationalized in terms of mechanical models which describe the cell as a "slippery droplet" of viscous fluid. A number of different fluids have been proposed to approximate the fluid cytoplasm. This study focuses on two specific schemes: a shear thinning fluid with a constant surface tension and an interpenetrating mixture ...

To examine behaviors of ultra-thin but continuum liquid film, the long wave theory was employed, which is the time-evolution equation for the shape of the thin liquid film and includes the surface tension and surface forces at boundaries such as the van der Waals force. Stability/ instability of the liquid surface can be analyzed as growth and decay problem of ...


Enhancement of Phase Change Heat Transfer by using Surface Energy Patterning Techniques

Tzong-Shyng. Leu; Hung-Wen Lin; Tseng-Hsin Wu 2006 1st IEEE International Conference on Nano/Micro Engineered and Molecular Systems, 2006

Using phase change of working fluid to remove heat in a heat exchanger device is a high efficiency method. When superheated vapor passes over a sub-cooled substrate, water droplets nucleate and grow by coalescence with the surrounding drops. The merging droplets exhibit two-dimensional random motion somewhat like the Brownian movements of colloidal particles. If surface energy patterns are designed on ...
