Surface Tension Induced Instability of Viscous Liquid Jets

, , ,

Keywords: , , , ,

Viscous liquid jets are inherently unstable, and drop formation can be induced by various means including surface tension modulation. Furthermore, surface tension is temperature dependent, and can be modulated by locally heating the surface of the jet as
