Münsteranian Torturials on Nonlinear Science: SLIDROP - sliding drops on an inclined homogeneous substrate
- 1. Uwe
In the tutorial SLIDROP is one of a series of tutorials on the practical application of numerical path-continuation methods for problems in soft matter and pattern formation. It is part of the "Münsteranian Torturials on Nonlinear Science". The tutorial explores a dimensionless thin-film equation closely related to the one in the tutorial SITDROP. Here, a lateral driving force is included and drops are examined that slide down an incline. You will calculate stationary states, i.e., steady states in a frame moving at a constant velocity (that is a nonlinear eigenvalue of the problem). The employed main control parameter is the inclination angle. The employed code package is auto07p. It is recommended to consider this tutorial after the tutorial SITDROP.
