Paper online (Colloids and Surfaces A) on contact angle hysteresis

Shi, Z., Zhang, Y., Liu, M., Hanoar, D., Gan, Y. (2018) Dynamic contact angle hysteresis in liquid bridges. Colloids and Surfaces A. 555:365-371. [DOI][PDF:059_CSA_2018] This work presents an experimental study of dynamic contact angle hysteresis using liquid bridges under cyclic compression and stretching between two identical plates. Under various loading rates, contact angle hystereses for three different […]
