Impact of liquid drops on a rough surface comprising microgrooves

Impact of liquid drops on a rough surface comprising microgrooves Impact of water drops on a stainless steel surface comprising rectangular shaped parallel grooves is studied experimentally. Geometric parameters of the surface groove structure such as groove depth, groove width and solid pillar width separating any two successive grooves were kept at 7.5, 136 and 66 μm, respectively. The study was confined to the impact of drops in inertia dominated flow regime with Weber number in the range 15–257. Experimental results of drop impact process obtained for the grooved surface were compared with those obtained for a smooth surface to elucidate the influence of surface grooves on the impact process. The grooves definitely influence both spreading and receding processes of impacting liquid drops. A more striking observation from this study is that the receding process of impacting liquid drops is dramatically changed by the groove structure for all droplet Weber number. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals

Abstract

Impact of water drops on a stainless steel surface comprising rectangular shaped parallel grooves is studied experimentally. Geometric parameters of the surface groove structure such as groove depth, groove width and solid pillar width separating any two successive grooves were kept at 7.5, 136 and 66 μm, respectively. The study was confined to the impact of drops in inertia dominated flow regime with Weber number in the range 15–257. Experimental results of drop impact process obtained for the grooved surface were compared with those obtained for a smooth surface to elucidate the influence of surface grooves on the impact process. The grooves definitely influence both spreading and receding processes of impacting liquid drops. A more striking observation from this study is that the receding process of impacting liquid drops is dramatically changed by the groove structure for all droplet Weber number.
