Droplet Evaporation


In this research, the behavior of various metallic and non-metallic surfaces in evaporation of water drops have been investigated. It is assumed that the drop evaporation is solely due to the diffusion of the water vapor from the surface of the drop to the environment and the influence of other phenomena is neglected. It is observed that for a metallic surface, the evaporation generally takes place at a constant contact area. In contrast, for a non-metallic surface, the drop expresses a sliding behavior in specific time intervals. Figures below show the evaporation processes of water drops on aluminum and plexiglass surfaces until complete evaporartion.
