**3-D Film and Droplet Flows over Topography**

Several important practical applications: e.g. film flow in the eye, electronics cooling, heat exchangers, combustion chambers, etc... Focus on: precision coating of micro-scale displays and sensors, Tourovskaia et al, Nature Protocols, 3, 2006. Pesticide flow over leaves, Glass et al, Pest Management Science, 2010.

**3D Film Flow over Topography**

For displays and sensors, coat liquid layers over functional topography – light-emitting species on a screen Key goal: ensure surfaces are as planar as possible – ensures product quality and functionality – BUT free surface disturbances are persistent! solid topographic substrate spin coat liquid conformal coating cure film levelling period > 50μm One of the major industrial applications is the deposition and flow of continuous thin liquid films over man-made or naturally occurring functional substrates containing regions of micro-scale topography. The main problem of this application occurs during the levelling or planarization stage, when the free surface of the coated film is desired to be kept as planar as possible, then it hardens and creates an artificial layer over given substrate. For example, you can see the capillary waves for thin film flow over thermoelectric micro-device that have to be levelled during the planarisation stage. In this work we would like to investigate how the free surface of the thin film is influenced by inertia of the fluid and compare capabilities of different mathematical formulations to capture the inertia effects.

**3D Film Flow over Topography**

Key Modelling Challenges: 3-D surface tension dominated free surface flows are very complex – Navier-Stokes solvers at early stage of development (see later) Surface topography often very small (~100s nm) but influential – need highly resolved grids? No universal wetting models exist Large computational problems – adaptive multigrid, parallel computing? Very little experimental data for realistic 3D flows. One of the major industrial applications is the deposition and flow of continuous thin liquid films over man-made or naturally occurring functional substrates containing regions of micro-scale topography. The main problem of this application occurs during the levelling or planarization stage, when the free surface of the coated film is desired to be kept as planar as possible, then it hardens and creates an artificial layer over given substrate.

**3D Film Flow over Topography**

Finite Element methods not as well-established for 3-D free surface flow. Promising alternatives include Level-Set, Volume of Fluid (VoF), Lattice Boltzmann etc… but still issues for 3D surface tension dominated flows – grid resolution etc... Fortunately thin film lubrication low assumptions often valid provided: ε=H0/L0 <<1 and capillary number Ca<<1 Enables 3D flow to be modelled by 2D systems of pdes. gravity H0 inflow One of the major industrial applications is the deposition and flow of continuous thin liquid films over man-made or naturally occurring functional substrates containing regions of micro-scale topography.

**3D Film Flow over Topography**

Decre & Baret, JFM, 2003: Flow of Water Film over a Trench Topography Comparison between experimental free surface profiles and those predicted by solution of the full Navier-Stokes and Lubrication equations. Agreement is very good between all data. Lubrication theory is accurate – for thin film flows with small topography and inertia! One of the major industrial applications is the deposition and flow of continuous thin liquid films over man-made or naturally occurring functional substrates containing regions of micro-scale topography.

**3D Film Flow over Topography**

Thin Film Flows with Significant Inertia Free surfaces can be strongly influenced by inertia: e.g. free surface instability, droplet coalescence,... standard lubrication theory can be extended to account for significant inertia – Depth Averaged Formulation of Veremieiev et al, Computer & Fluids, 2010. Film Flows of Arbitrary Thickness over Arbitrary Topography Need full numerical solutions of 3D Navier-Stokes equations! One of the major industrial applications is the deposition and flow of continuous thin liquid films over man-made or naturally occurring functional substrates containing regions of micro-scale topography.

**Depth-Averaged Formulation for Inertial Film Flows**

Reduction of the Navier-Stokes equations by the long-wave approximation: Restrictions: 2. Depth-averaging stage to decrease dimensionality of unknown functions by one: , The process of derivation of the Depth-Averaged Form includes reduction of the Navier-Stokes equations by the long-wave approximation, then averaging them along the depth of the film and finally assumption of self-similar velocity profile to estimate unknown terms. Restrictions: no velocity profiles and internal flow structure 3. Assumption of Nusselt velocity profile to estimate unknown friction and dispersion terms:

**Depth-Averaged Formulation for Inertial Film Flows**

DAF system of equations: For Re = 0 DAF ≡ LUB Obtained system of equations for 3 unknown functions – averaged streamwise and spanwise velocities and film thickness is closed by appropriate boundary conditions. As you can see there are convective terms in the momentum equations, that represent inertial forces and will cause a difficulty during the numerical resolution. For zero Reynolds number or without this convective terms the DAF system and the lubrication approximation are equivalent. In this case an explicit forms of the averaged velocities are obtained and are substituted into the equation for the conservation of mass that results in one forth order partial differential equation. Boundary conditions: Inflow b.c. Outflow (fully developed flow) Occlusion b.c.

11
**Free Surface Planarisation**

Noted above: many manufactured products require free surface disturbances to be minimised – planarisation Very difficult since comet-tail disturbances persist over length scales much larger than the source of disturbances Possible methods for achieving planarisation include: thermal heating of the substrate, Gramlich et al (2002) use of electric fields

Computational Issues Real and functional surfaces are often extremely complex. Multiply-connected circuit topography: Lee, Thompson and Gaskell, International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids, 2008 Need highly resolved grids for 3D flows Flow over a maple leaf topography Glass et al, Pest Management Science, 2010

15
**Adaptive Multigrid Methods**

Full Approximation Storage (FAS) Multigrid methods very efficient. Spatial and temporal adaptivity enables fine grids to be used only where they are needed. E.g. Film flow over a substrate with isolated square, circular and diamond-shaped topographies Free Surface Plan View of Adaptive Grid

**Droplet Flows: Bio-pesticides**

24
**Application of Bio-pesticides**

Changing EU legislation is limiting use of chemically active pesticides for pest control in crops. Bio-pesticides using living organisms (nematodes, bacteria etc...) to kill pests are increasing in popularity but little is know about flow deposition onto leaves Working with Food & Environment Research Agency in York and Becker Underwood Ltd to understand the dominant flow mechanisms

25
**Nematodes Nematodes are a popular bio-pesticide control**

method - natural organisms present in soil typically up to 500 microns in length. Aggressive organisms that attack the pest by entering body openings Release bacteria that stops pest feeding – kills the pest quickly Mixed with water and adjuvants and sprayed onto leaves

26
**What do we want to understand?**

Why do adjuvants improve effectiveness – reduced evaporation rate? How do nematodes affect droplet size distribution? How can we model flow over leaves? How does impact speed, droplet size and orientation affect droplet motion?

38
**Bio-pesticides: initial conclusions**

Addition of carrier material or commercial product (bio-pesticide) does not affect the Volume Mean Diameter of the spray. Dynamics of the droplet over a leaf are governed by gravity, Stokes drag and contact angle hysteresis; these are verified by experiments. Droplet’s shape can be adequately predicted by lubrication theory, while inertia and initial condition have minor effect. Simulating realistically small bio-pesticide droplets is extremely computationally intensive: efficient parallelisation is needed ( see e.g. Lee et al (2011), Advances in Engineering Software) BUT probably does not add much extra physical understanding!
