Contact Angle Wettability and Adhesion Book Review:

The topic of wettability (measured in terms of contact angle) is of tremendous interest from both fundamental and applied points of view, Wettability plays an essential role in many industrial processes, so an understanding of factors dictating wettability and how to modulate it is of paramount importance. In the last years there has been an explosive interest in superhydrophobic surfaces (i.e., surfaces with water contact angle of 150° or higher) because of their relevance/importance in many areas ranging from self-cleaning windows to nanofluidics. Also recently there has been heightened activity in the field of electrowetting. Contact Angle, Wettability and Adhesion, Volume 6 is divided into four parts: Part 1: Fundamental Aspects; Part 2: Wettability Control/Modification; Part 3: Superhydrophobic Surfaces; and Part 4: Surface Free Energy and Relevance of Wettability in Adhesion. The topics covered include: a guide to the equilibrium contact angles maze: fundamental aspects of wetting of rough and chemically heterogeneous surfaces: work of adhesion for rock-oil-brine systems; Is the world basic?; wettability control/modification using various approaches; superhydrophobic surfaces and ways to impart superhydrophobicity; adsorption on superhydrophobic surfaces; solid surface energy determination; surface modification of different materials; relevance of wettability and adhesion aspects in a variety of reinforced composites. In essence, this volume reflects the cumulative wisdom of many active and renowned researchers and provides a commentary on contemporary research in the fascinating world of contact angles and wettability. This volume and its predecessors (5 volumes), containing bountiful information, will be of much value to anyone interested/involved in controlling wetting phenomena and their applications.

Wettability at High Temperatures Book Review:

The purpose of this book is to bring together current scientific understanding of wetting behaviour that has been gained from theoretical models and quantitative experimental observations. The materials considered are liquid metals or inorganic glasses in contact with solid metals or ceramics at temperatures of 200-2000oC. Wetting has been a significant scientific concern for the last two centuries and reference will be made to classical work by nineteenth century scientists such as Dupré, Laplace and Young that was validated by observations of the behaviour of chemically inert ambient temperature systems. In attempting to achieve the aims of the book, the text has been divided into ten Chapters that can be grouped into four stages of presentation. The first stage comprises two Chapters that review established and newly developed models for their relevance to wetting behaviour at high temperatures, including recent models that encompass the role of chemical reactions at the solid/liquid interfaces. Attention is paid both to equilibrium wetting behaviour (Chapter 1) and to the factors that control the approach to equilibrium (Chapter 2). Then follow Chapters concerned with experimental techniques for scientific measurement of the extent of wetting (Chapter 3) and with the surface energy data for both metals and non-metals that are essential for quantitative interpretation of wetting behaviour (Chapter 4). Descriptions of experimentally determined and quantified wetting behaviour are presented and interpreted in the third part comprising five Chapters dealing with the characteristics of metal/metal, metal/oxide, metal/non-oxide, metal/carbon and molten glass/solid systems. The book concludes with a Chapter commenting on the role of wetting behaviour in joining similar and dissimilar materials by liquid route techniques.

Wetting and Wettability Book Review:

On the liquid 's surface, the molecules have fewer neighbors in comparison with the bulk volume. As a result, the energy interaction shows itself in the surface tension. Traditionally, the surface tension can be assumed as a force in the unit of the length which can be counted by the unit of Newton on squared meter, or energy on the units of the surface. The surface tension, implies the interface between liquid and vapor, which is an example of the surface tensions. The equilibrium between these surface tensions, decides that a droplet on a solid surface, would have a droplet form or will change to layer form. This book collects new developments in wetting and wettability science.

Wettability Control on Deformation Book Review:

Understanding of multiphase flow in porous media is important for a wide range of applications such as soil science, environmental remediation, energy resources, and CO2 sequestration. This phenomenon depends on the complex interplay between the fluid and solid forces such as gravitational, capillary, and viscous forces, as well as wettability of solid phase. Such interactions along with the geometry of the medium give rise to a variety of complex flow regimes. Although much research has been done in the area of wettability, its mechanical effect is not well understood, and it continues to challenge our understanding of the phenomenon on macroscopic and microscopic scales. In this study, therefore, the effect of wettability on the deformation of porous media and fluid-fluid patterns is studied through a series of two-dimensional (2D) simulations. To this end, discrete element method (DEM) and volume of fluid (VOF) are coupled to accurately model free-surface flow interaction in cylindrical packs of solid particles. The fluid–particle interactions are modeled by exchanging information between DEM and VOF, while the effect of wettability is considered to study how it controls fluid displacement. The results indicate that the drag force and deformation in the pack varies with the change in wettability and capillary number. To demonstrate the effect of both wettability and capillary number, a series of numerical experiments were conducted using both resolved and unresolved coupling approaches. Our results show that for unresolved methodology, drag force and deformation were greatest for near extreme wettability conditions and for resolved methodology, drag forces and deformation were greater with increase in contact angle.

Laser Modification of the Wettability Characteristics of Engineering Materials Engineering Materials Series ERS Publication 3 Book Review:

The techniques available to engineers for the modification of a material’s wettability characteristics are invariably extremely complex and difficult to control. The use of lasers, however, has been shown to provide a clean, accurate, and versatile way of modifying and improving the wettability characteristics of a wide range of engineering materials. Lawrence and Li have amply demonstrated the practicability of employing different types of lasers to effect changes in the wettability charactersitics of a number of engineering materials. Laser Maodification of the Wettability Characteristics of Engineering Materials makes extensive and comparative studies of the behavior and properties of composite, ceramic, metallic, and polymeric materials. The final chapter, practical applications of the use of lasers in modifying material behavior, is particularly useful as it puts this cutting edge research in industrial context. The authors have extended the scope of their industrially based research to present a very useful, coherent source for engineers. This excellen volume will be of great value to all those engineers and materials technologists working in industry or research institutions interested in the latest developments of property manipulation. Tribologists, surface technologists, those concerned with protective coatings and bonding materials, as well as anyone interested in laser technology, opt-electronics, marking, and laser engraving will find Laser Modification a useful guide.
