Capillary Rise in a Taylor-Hauksbee Cell with a Tilted Edge
In this work we discuss a series of experiments to get the equilibrium profiles when a viscous liquid rises spontaneously in the wedge-shaped gap between two vertical plates intersecting at a tight angle \(\upalpha \ll 1\). We contrast the differences between the case with vertical edge and those where the aristae is tilted to the vertical. Our theoretical model agrees very well with the experimental data.
