Mathematical models for the evaporation of sessile droplets

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Despite its intrinsic complexity and multidisciplinary nature, considerable insight can be gained into many aspects of the evaporation of sessile droplets by using relatively simple mathematical models. In this chapter we describe some of these models and some of the insights they bring to our understanding of this fascinating problem, focusing almost entirely on models that can be solved analytically either fully or, in some cases, up to quadrature of known functions.
