Title: Supercomputer Simulation of Colliding Microdrops of Water
Author: Greenspan, Donald
Abstract: Microdrop collisions are important in fast kinetic, microwave, nucleation, and rainstorm studies. In this Paper a molecular model of colliding microdrops of water is simulated on a CRAY X-MP/24. A least squares fit of the force field allows relatively large time steps in the numerical procedure. Rotating "raindrop" modes, "dumbell" modes, and oscillatory oblateness modes are demonstrated, as are nonadhesive soft and hard collisions.
