ABSTRAKT

The postimpact spreading and recoil behavior of millimeter-size liquid droplets of pure water, water−glycerol solution, and non-Newtonian aqueous solutions of medium-grade hydroxyl ethyl cellulose (HEC 250 MR) on dry horizontal hydrophobic (Teflon) and hydrophilic (glass) substrates is presented. The drop spread−recoil dynamics are captured using a high-speed high-resolution digital video recording and image processing. The non-Newtonian effects of aqueous polymeric solutions on postimpact spreading are contrasted with those for a water−glycerol solution with identical surface tension and zero-shear rate viscosity. For a broad range of drop Weber numbers (20 ≤ We ≤ 200), dynamic visualized records of impact, spreading, and recoil are presented along with their measured temporal variations in drop-diameter-scaled spread and film height. The shear-rate-dependent viscosity of the polymer solution is found to give rise to highly complex spread−recoil dynamics compared to Newtonian liquids. During initial spread, because the shear rate tends to be high, shear-thinning or pseudoplasticity effects manifest in polymer solution drops to alter their spread dynamics. Contrarily, during recoil their higher low-shear apparent viscosity tends to retard recoil and dampen shape oscillations. Shear-rate-dependent non-Newtonian behavior is further seen at low We (low shear rate during spreading), where the maximum spread of HEC solution droplets is comparable to that of high-viscosity water−glycerol solution, whereas at high We (high shear rate during spreading), their maximum spreads are closer to those of low-viscosity water droplets.
