6 Our basic questions for today How large are the bubbles/drops? -> Next class, on bubble/droplet formation What is the flow resistance? Film thickness? Inertia, Marangoni effects? Partial wetting? Channel Shape? 6

7 Bretherton = Landau-Levich y x u Moving reference frame: bubble stands still: u(0) = U, ( h) = 0 y Navier Stokes: Continuity p u = μ x r h q + = 0, with q = udy t x h 0 7

8 Bretherton = Landau-Levich y x Navier Stokes: y yh u= U+ p μ μ Laplace pressure p = [ γh ] Continuity γ t x μ x x h h h + U h = 0 h γ h q= udy = Uh h μ x 0 8

9 Bretherton = Landau-Levich γ t x μ x x h h h + U h = 0 y x Bubble stands still, so must be zero, we balance the nd and rd terms: h γ h ~ h x μu x x x ~ λ δ γ 1 δ 1/ δ ~ δ or Ca ~ h~ δ λ μu λ λ λ 9

10 Bretherton = Landau-Levich First matching rule 1/ ~ δ Ca λ 1 κ = r y x Scaling of the problem δ ~ rca λ ~ rca / 1/ h δ κ ~ ~ 1 κ = x λ r Second matching rule δ 1 ~ r λ 10

11 Full Solution of the simplest case: Landau-Levich-Bretherton film equation

12 Scaling of the film equation We start from the film evolution equation h γ h t x μ x + Uh h = 0 y x Steady state, so drop the transient term γ μ h x Uh h = c h μu h c = x γ h In the flat region, h 0 = x h η = δ ( Ca) ξ = δ 1/ x η η 1 = η which gives c: δ c 0 =, δ c= δ 1

13 Forced Wetting Film Equation exponential range η 1 η η 1 = η parabolic range η 1 η η 1 which has an analytical solution η 0 which has an analytical solution 1/ 1/ ξ ξ ξ η = 1+ αe + βe cos ξ + γe sin ξ P η = ξ + Qξ+ R 1

14 Four different regions with their scaling η η 1 = η y x flat exponential parabolic spherical no η = 1 show n η 0 n = no η 1 show η η 1 η η 1, 1 r/ δ η 1/ η Ca ( ), 0 η ~1 r/ δ η r( Ca) δ = / 14

15 Set up match of exp and parabolic η η 1 = η Exponential: η η 1 = η( ξ) = αe ξ y x parabolic: η 0 P ( ) = + + η ξ ξ Qξ R flat exponential parabolic spherical no η = 1 show n η 0 n = no η 1 show η η 1 η η 1, 1 r/ δ η 1/ η Ca ( ), 0 η ~1 r/ δ η r( Ca) δ = / 15

16 Use exponential for initial conditions: η( ξ) = 1+ ae η(0) = 1+ a η (0) = a η (0) = a η η 1 = η ξ And integrate full equation with that Numerical Shooting 0.64 ηξ = ξ + ( ) e ξ Numerical solution Move numerical solution to left and right, such that Q = 0 Fitting: P = 0.64, R =.79 Note: MTK gets a = 0.001, P = 0.64, Q=0, R =.90 with Mathematica s NDSolve P ( } = + + P= η ( ξ) ηξ ξ Qξ R Q = η ( ξ) ξη ( ξ) R = η ξ ξ + ξ η ξ η ξ ( ) ( ) ( ) ( )

17 Set up match of parabolic and spherical η η 1 = η h = x 1 r η δ = / r( Ca) is the same as y x Parabola matches to the sphere: δ δ 0.64= = 0.64( Ca) / r( Ca) r / flat exponential parabolic spherical no η = 1 show n η 0 n = η = 1+ αe ξ η= ξ + η = a n η ~1 r/ δ η r( Ca) δ = / 17

18 Pressure Jump x / The parabola h= ( Ca) r matches to a sphere of curvature ( / r)( ( Ca) / y x flat exponential parabolic spherical no η = 1 show n η 0 n = η = 1+ αe ξ η= ξ + η = a n η ~1 r/ δ η r( Ca) δ = / 18

19 Rear of the bubble ηξ = ξ ( ) Numerical solution -4-4 Start numerical solution with exponential function 1/ 1/ ξ ξ η = 1+ βe cos ξ + γe sin ξ - 19

20 Pressure drop over the bubble: / Δ p= [ ( Ca) ] γ r / Δ p= [1 0.46( Ca) ] γ r Δp= 4.5( Ca) / γ r 0

22 The not-so-simple cases Marangoni, Inertia, non-round, thick films,

23 Why the maximum? First matching rule 1/ ~ δ Ca λ Second matching rule δ ~ 1 λ r δ Thick film decreases radius of curvature! Scaling of the problem / Ca δ ~ r 1 + Ca / / Ca λ~ r [1 + Ca ] / 1/ Aussilous, Phys Fluids 1 (000) 67 Taylor, J Fluid Mech 10 (1961), 161

24 Marangoni Effects y x u Moving reference frame: bubble stands still: u(0) = U, ( h) = 0 y u(0) = U, u( h) = 0 now h γ h q= udy = Uh h 1μ x 0 4

25 Marangoni Effects y x u Moving reference frame: bubble stands still: u(0) = U, ( h) = 0 y 5 γ t x μ x x h h h + U h = 0 γ 1μ u(0) = U, u( h) = 0 / δ= 0.64 r( Ca) / δ= 0.64 r(1 Ca)

26 Inertia changes bubble shape Ca = 0.04 Re = 1,10,100,00 Kreutzer et al, AIChE J 51 (005) 48 6

29 Hydrostatics Without flow, there cannot be a gradient of (Laplace) pressure p = 0 For a channel of width W and height H, we have at the nose Δ p= γ + H W 1 In the gutter, no curvature in the axial direction, so 1 1 Δ p= γ + α 1 α = + W H 9 Ajaev & Homsy, Ann Rev.

31 The non-uniformity starts at the nose 0.64 δ (Ca cos φ) / = α 1 Wong, Radke & Morris, J Fluid Mech 9 (1995) 71

32 What have we learned Scaling in flow of long bubbles / droplets in cylindrical tubes (basically the same as Landau Levich) Full solution requires a double matching Marangoni effects increase film thickness and pressure drop by a factor 4 / There is a maximum film thickness at high Ca (this does not happen with a flat plate LL scaling) Inertia increases film thickness, numerical solution needed Square channels have highly non-uniform films
