Wicking in a Paper Strip

Application ID: 79061

This example models wicking in a porous medium. Wicking is the phenomenon that occurs when a dry porous material is put into contact with a fluid: it will absorb the fluid due to capillary forces. The absorption will continue until an equilibrium is reached where the gravitational forces balance the capillary forces

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