Liquid Layers, Capillary Interfaces and Floating Bodies

Small book cover: Liquid Layers, Capillary Interfaces and Floating Bodies

Liquid Layers, Capillary Interfaces and Floating Bodies
by

Publisher: Leipzig University
Number of pages: 209

Description:
In these notes we study liquid layers, capillary interfaces and floating bodies. The leading term in the associated equilibrium equation for the interface is the mean curvature. In the case of liquid layers no volume constraint or contact angle occur.

A theory of subsonic flight based on a combination of analysis and computation. We uncover a mechanism for the generation of substantial lift at the expense of small drag of a wing, which is fundamentally different from the classical theories.
