Supercomputer Simulation of Sessile and Pendent Drops
A intermolecular approach is developed for the modeling of sessile and pendent drops. Fundamental mechanisms of drop formation are formulated in terms of gravity and classical intermolecular type forces. CRAY X-MP/24 computer examples illustrate standing and falling drops, free surface motions, and convergence to equilibrium. The role of temperature in drop configuration modeling is shown to be significant.
