Title: Supercomputer Simulation of Liquid Drop Formation on a Solid Surface
Author: Greenspan, Donald
Abstract: Using a molecular dynamics type approach, we show how to simulate the formation of a liquid drop on a solid surface. Application is made to the case in which the liquid is water and the solid is graphite. The dynamical equations are large systems of nonlinear, ordinary differential equations which must be solved numerically. CRAY X-MP/ 24 simulations and related contact angle calculations are described and discussed.
