5-7) The modified wettability
of wood, however, can change its behavior with coating or gluing processes.
of the vitreous and materials is calculated by measuring the contact angle.
The improved (tertiary) oil recovery technologies such as chemical, gas injection and thermal recovery operations are implemented to recover these huge amounts of trapped oil by resulting favourable alterations in fluids-solid interactions, namely spreading, adhesion and wettability
evaluation of the wood by determination of the contact angle is difficult, since the wood surface shows a certain roughness, inherent to its anatomic structure.
To measure the surface wettability
of the variously treated surfaces of the titanium
The figure 3 shows the water droplets on super hydrophobic treated Al 7075 alloy substrate, which obviously shows the change of wettability
The coatings are promising for controlling mold growth while simultaneously providing improved wettability
, flexibility, barrier and mechanical properties.
Overall, the plasma surface finish was superior to the conventional OSP finish with respect to wettability
and joint reliability, indicating it is a suitable material for the fabrication of complex electronic devices.
In this study, we looked into the wettability
of dual scales textured zinc oxide (ZnO) surface, which are the clusters, made of ZnO, and each cluster consists of the packed ZnO nanorods.
Crustaceans secrete waxes onto their cuticles, reducing cuticular wettability
and possibly making it more difficult for epibionts to adhere (Becker et al.
folds of the cuticle or existing epicuticular waxes (formation of three dimensional wax crystals on the plant surface) have a strong influence on surface wettability
To improve oil recovery several techniques had been employed, one of them is wettability
alteration during water flooding.
