Durability of surfaces due to Droplet Sliding

Location: MEL 2409
Contact: Professor Nenad Miljkovic

  • Testing surface degradation due to continuous sliding off of water droplets falling on the sample surface.
  • Continuous monitoring of mass of sample while droplets impact and roll off surface.

For lubricant-infused surfaces, the weight loss of surface with time due to continuous sliding of droplets is a measure of the lubricant drainage from such surfaces.
