Title: Drop Impact on an Inclined and a Moving Surface
Author: Sookran, Salman Buksh
Abstract: This thesis has made progress in two different areas related to drop impact onto a surface. Firstly, a systematic experimental study has been performed to understand asymmetric spreading of low and high surface tension liquids on a moving surface. A new time evolution model for droplet spreading on a moving surface was developed. This model regardless the value of surface tension of the liquid can predict the spreading of low viscous (1-4cSt) liquids on a moving surface. Secondly, liquids with viscosity (1-5cSt) and surface tension (17.4-72.8mNm) were used to study the drop impact on moving and inclined surface. Experiments performed with similar normal (0.9-2.9m/s) and tangential (0.8-2.9m/s) velocities on both surfaces to test our hypothesis that spreading/splashing for these two surface conditions should be same. Results indicates that our hypothesis is true, except for some special conditions when, normal and tangential velocities are greater than the range of our analysis.
