DescriptionThis is the third Volume in the series “Advances in Contact Angle, Wettability and Adhesion” initiated to consolidate information and provide commentary on certain recent research aspects dealing with this important topic. Its predecessor Volumes 1 and 2 were published in 2013 and 2015, respectively.
This new book comprising 15 research and review articles is divided into four parts: Part 1: Contact Angle Measurement and Analysis; Part 2: Wettability Behavior; Part 3: Hydrophobic/Superhydrophobic Surfaces; Part 4: Wettability, Surface Free Energy and Adhesion. The topics covered include:
O Procedure to measure and analyse contact angles/drop shape behaviors.
O Contact angle measurement considering spreading, evaporation and reactive substrate.
O Measurement of contact angle of a liquid on a substrate of the same liquid.
O Evolution of the axisymmetric droplet shape parameters.
O Interfacial modulus of a solid surface.
O Functionalization of textiles using UV-based techniques for surface modification—patterned wetting behavior.
O Wettability behavior of oleophilic and oleophobic nanorough surfaces.
O Wettability behavior of nanofluids.
O Dielectrowetting for digital microfluidics.
O Hydrophobicity and superhydrophobicity in fouling prevention.
O Superhydrophobic/superhydrophilic hybrid surface.
O Laser material processing for enhancing stem cell growth.
O Wettability correlation for bioadhesion to different materials.
O Determination of the surface free energy of solid surfaces: statistical consideration.
O Determination of apparent surface free energy using hysteresis approach.
