Droplet Evaporation on Solid Substrate

Application ID: 97071

Droplet evaporation is ubiquitous in everyday life, and is essential in many industrial processes such as ink-jet printing, cleaning or coating of surfaces, and phase change heat transfer.

In this model, a water droplet placed on a solid substrate evaporates in air. We solve the equations for two-phase flow coupled with heat transfer and transport of water vapor. The model is first verified against isothermal analytical solution, and then extended to include nonisothermal effects.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
