A numerical study of 3-D droplets spreading on chemically patterned surfaces

      We studied numerically the three-dimensional droplets spreading on chemically patterned surfaces with periodic squares separated by channels. Our model consists of the Navier-Stokes-Cahn-Hilliard equations with the generalized Navier boundary conditions. Stick-slip behavior and contact angle hysteresis are observed. Moreover, we also study the relationship between the effective advancing/receding angle and the two intrinsic angles of the surface patterns. By increasing the volume of droplet gradually, we find that the contact line tends gradually to an equiangular octagon.
