Scale bridging simulation of dynamic wetting based on the phase field method


Starting with the second funding period, the new project B07 aims at the fundamental understanding of local transport processes at the contact line in multiscale, dynamic wetting processes on complex substrates. A proprietary CFD-solver based on the diffuse-interface phase field method and developed in OpenFOAM will be used. The method enables the description of imbibition and penetration processes in porous/structured substrates, especially during capillarity dominated wetting. Focus lies on the exact detection of local heterogeneities (pore size distribution, roughness, functionalization) as well as on a scale bridging methodology, to be realized by combining modern HPC techniques, DG methods and the hybrid atomistic-continuum method.
