Fluids Seminar: Dynamic Wetting Failure and Air Entrainment in Coating Flows

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Professor Satish Kumar Chemical Engineering University of Minnesota Minneapolis, MN Dynamic Wetting Failure and Air Entrainment in Coating Flows Dynamic wetting is crucial to processes where liquid displaces another fluid (such as air) along a solid surface, an important example being the deposition of a coating liquid onto a moving substrate. Dynamic wetting failure occurs when the displacement happens too quickly, and this leads to entrainment of the receding fluid into the advancing liquid.
