Abstract

This review critically examines the experimental aspects of dynamic wetting, considering extant data for different geometries. Both partial wetting and complete wetting are considered for cases that include droplets, fibers, tubes, and plates. The wetting of porous materials is also considered, along with the new field of micro- and nanofluidics.
