Wilson, M. C. T. and Kubiak, K.J. (2016) Simulation of Drops on Surfaces. In: Fundamentals of Inkjet Printing: The Science of Inkjet and Droplets. John Wiley & Sons. ISBN 978-3-527-33785-9

This chapter explores ways in which the interactions of liquid drops with solid surfaces can be simulated using numerical methods. Simulations are desirable for a number of reasons, for example:(i) to provide additional insight to complement what can be achieved
experimentally,(ii) to explore new (potentially far-fetched) ideas before performing experiments, and hence “steering” experiments efficiently, and (iii) to provide an optimization tool, possibly exploiting formal mathematical/computational optimization methods or ...
