CAPILLARITY AND WETTING PHENOMENA DE GENNES PDF

As I glance out my window in the early morning, I can see beads of droplets gracing a spider web. The film of dew that has settled on the threads is unstable and breaks up spontaneously into droplets. This phenomenon has implications for the treatment of textile fibers the process known as "oiling" , glass, and carbon. It is no less important when applying mascara!

Choice Review by P. Douville, emeritus, Central Connecticut State University "You are an intelligent spider sitting on your web. Early morning light forms tiny rainbows as it passes through the beads of dew strung along the filaments composing your hard-earned handiwork. Why beads? What happened to the water in between each drop? To answer this question, our eight-legged intellectual must first gain an understanding of how liquids such as water actually wet surfaces and why such liquids fail to wet other surfaces.

The problem encompasses such subjects as liquids rising up capillary tubes, paint spreading on solid surfaces or liquids spreading on other liquids, the fascinating subject of bubble formation and stability, and why water streams down some surfaces and forms droplets on other surfaces.

De Gennes CollAge College de France; Institute Curie , Brochard-Wyart Institut Curie , and QuA c rA c Quere CollAge College de France have written an excellent treatise on these phenomena that opens with a very poetic introduction relating esoteric concepts to everyday observations, and includes chapter references, historical sketches, and a very good discussion of each problem at chapter beginnings.

For readers with backgrounds in mathematics, physics, and chemistry, although it is not beyond advanced undergraduates in the sciences and technological fields. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students. The range of topics covered and a host of physical ideas and principles the authors describe as guidelines in the field are likely to make this book interesting to a wide audience Shikhmurzaev, Contemporary Physics, Vol.

This book brings together almost everything which is known in a single volume. It contains a wealth of practical information about a very large variety of surface phenomena. This book should be of interest to a large variety of scientists not only physicists. It has been wonderfully translated by Axel Reisinger. The English is fully fluent and idiomatic The book can be read with pleasure and profit by the uninitiated, but it is also a valuable - and even an indispensable reference work for the expert.

Upper-division undergraduates through professionals: two-year technical program students. Thus it contains many illuminating examples and sketches In conclusion, the intended readers of this book, whether they be soft matter students or scientists or simply the curious, should find therein not just a very good source of information but also an impressive collection of exciting and simple explanations of very complex phenomena.

Capillarity and Wetting Phenomena

About this book Introduction As I glance out my window in the early morning, I can see beads of droplets gracing a spider web. The film of dew that has settled on the threads is unstable and breaks up spontaneously into droplets. This phenomenon has implications for the treatment of textile fibers the process known as "oiling" , glass, and carbon. It is no less important when applying mascara! I take my morning shower. The moment I step out, I dry off by way of evaporation which makes me feel cold and by dewetting the process by which dry areas form spontaneously and expand on my skin.
