Coalescence of Liquid Drops


Our Contribution: Multiscale Simulations of Different Models


Coalescence of 100nm (left) and 1mm (right) drops of water. As inertia begins to dominate viscous forces (right), the drops undergo numerous oscillations before achieving their equilibrium state


The Initial Stages of Coalescence: Computations vs Scalings

Models vs Experiments

An Improved Scaling for the Inertial Regime

Comparison of our simulations with free spheres (grey lines) to experiments in [Paulsen et al, 2011] for pendant drops, showing good agreement local to the bridge, despite the different geometries.
