Dynamic Wetting

Kinetic Effects in the Gas


Experiments conducted in [Xu et al 2005] showing that reductions in ambient pressure can suppress the splash of an impacting drop. Video on the left is of a mm-sized ethanol drop impacting a solid at attmospheric pressure whilst the video on the right shows impact at a reduced pressure suppresses splashing.
