The Effect of Liquid Viscosity on the Formation of Thermocapillary Structures
- 13 Downloads
An experimental study of the formation of thermocapillary structures at low Reynolds numbers and temperature gradients at the surface of the film in a wide range of the liquid viscosity is performed. The data on the distance between the jets are generalized. It is demonstrated that the transverse dimension of the structures is determined by the capillary constant and does not depend on either the liquid viscosity or the flow rate (Reynolds number of the film).
