The Navier- Stokes equation was solved through the finite volume method on a Cartesian staggered grid. The level-set method was used to track free surface of the immiscible two-phase, gas and liquid. The Navier boundary condition is enforced on the entire solid surface away from the triple contact line to remove the force singularity. The continuum model formulated by Ren and E was used near the contact line [1]. Our code was validated by comparing it with other numerical results, and gave a lower mass loss of less than 2%. The method can easily be extended to a three dimensional model. Droplet spreading and recoiling were calculated and discussed with the presented numerical methods. Both two-dimensional and threedimensional simulation results agree well with experimental observations. en_US dc.language.iso en en_US dc.relation.ispartofseries Micro and nanosystems en_US dc.rights © 2011 Bentham Science Publishers Ltd. en_US dc.subject DRNTU::Engineering::Mechanical engineering dc.title Numerical studies of sessile droplet shape with moving contact lines en_US dc.type Journal Article dc.contributor.school School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering en_US dc.identifier.doi http://dx.doi.org/10.2174/1876402911103010056 dc.identifier.rims 159438
