Effect of capillarity on the breakup of liquid jets, interfacial wave and motion of droplets in immiscible liquids

Wang, Fei

Abstract (englisch):
Whether the end-state of a liquid jet is a uniform-radius cylinder or a chain of droplets is addressed in the present thesis, based on the physical principle of surface energy minimization.In comparison with the classic Plateau-Rayleigh theory, the present stability criterion is for a more broad picture.
The derived stability criterion has potential applications, for example,for the fabrication of nanoparticles and inkjet printing. Additionally, the effects of capillary flow on the motion of
droplets and spinodal decomposition are discussed.
