Item description for Capillary Surfaces: Shape - Stability - Dynamics, in Particular Under Weightlessness (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics) by U. Merbold Dieter W. Langbein...

This book is devoted to interfaces between two fluids, that is, between a liquid and a gas (such as water and air) or between two liquids (such as water and oil). The main motivation for the book is twenty years of experimentation in the microgravity environment of space, and the associated theory. This unique environment has made possible numerous qualitative and quantitative observations of effects that are masked by gravity on earth. Large liquid surfaces have been created and their stability and dynamics have been studied. The experimental insights gained have, in turn, strongly stimulated further theoretical and mathematical investigations. Advancing and receding contact angles, wetting barriers, pinning of contact lines, oscillations of capillary surfaces and fluid sloshing are also discussed.

Reviews - What do customers think about Capillary Surfaces: Shape - Stability - Dynamics, in Particular Under Weightlessness (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics)?

Simply the best  Feb 4, 2004
Dieter Langbein wrote one of the best approaches to capillary surfaces i've ever seen. I am an undergraduate student at UCF and Langbein's Capillary Surfaces is a wonderful piece of knowledge. The examples and descriptions quite possibly explain the reasons behind capillary rise. This text has served its purpose and beyond in terms of educating the reader. Langbein might as well call himself a genius because i see the future in capillary surfaces and its application. Read this book if you are extremely interested in the reasons of capillary surfaces, the shapes they undergo, stability, and dynamics. Moreover, weightlessness is a big treat for those who want to know the effects of space.
