Matthias Günther, Georg Prokert
2005 SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis  
Interest is directed to a moving boundary problem with a gradient flow structure which generalizes surface-tension driven Hele-Shaw flow to the case of nonconstant surface tension coefficient taken along  ...  The problem is reformulated as a vector-valued, degenerate parabolic Cauchy problem. To solve this, we prove and apply an abstract result on Galerkin approximations with variable bilinear forms.  ...  Introduction Various experimental studies investigate the influence of spatial variations of the surface energy density (corresponding to the surface tension coefficient γ) on surface tension driven Hele-Shaw  ...

Matthias Günther, Georg Prokert
2006 SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis  
We investigate a moving boundary problem with a gradient flow structure which generalizes Hele-Shaw flow driven solely by surface tension to the case of nonconstant surface tension coefficient taken along  ...  The resulting evolution problem is first order in time, contains a third-order nonlinear pseudodifferential operator and is degenerate parabolic.  ...  It is the aim of the present paper to consider the generalization of the well-investigated Hele-Shaw flow problem to the case of nonconstant surface tension coefficient (or surface energy density).  ...

Adaptive Micromixer Based on the Solutocapillary Marangoni Effect in a Continuous-Flow Microreactor

Dmitry Bratsun, Konstantin Kostarev, Alexey Mizev, Sebastian Aland, Marcel Mokbel, Karin Schwarzenberger, Kerstin Eckert
2018 Micromachines  
We propose a new type of micromixer based on the intensive relaxation oscillations induced by a fundamental effect discovered recently.  ...  Microreactors of this type have a special vessel, in which the convective vortices are organized to mix the reagents to increase the product output.  ...  Due to its higher density, water is filled as the lower layer and paraffin oil with isopropyl alcohol forms the upper layer in the vertically oriented Hele-Shaw cell.  ...

Summary: “Marangoni-Bénard convection is the process by which oscillatory waves are generated on an interface due to a change in surface tension.  ...  The focus is on local behavior in three settings: (1) Hele-Shaw flows in which the interface is initially nonanalytic; (2) power-law Hele- Shaw flows in which the interface contains a corner; and (3) Stefan  ... 

The formation and evolution of layered structures in porous media: effects of porosity and mechanical dispersion

Stan Schoofs, Ron A. Trompert, Ulrich Hansen
2000 Physics of the Earth and Planetary Interiors  
Growth of a convective layer through convective entrainment, the formation of a stable density interface on top of the layer and destabilization of the next layer are intimately Ž . Ž . linked.  ...  This force balance also indicates whether a density interface keeps intact, migrates upwards or breaks down during the further evolution of the layered sequence.  ...  Another specific feature of low-porosity flow is that fluid exchange occurs on small lateral scales, compared with Hele-Shaw flow.  ...

2004 Mathematical Reviews  
Summary: “We consider two-dimensional Hele-Shaw corner flows without effect of the surface tension and with an interface extend- ing to the infinity along one of the walls.  ...  To prove this, the evolution problem is reformulated in a fixed domain by means of the Hanzawa transformation (as in the case of the Stefan problem).  ...

From the Hele-Shaw Experiment to Integrable Systems: A Historical Overview

Alexander Vasil'ev
2008 Complex Analysis and Operator Theory  
This paper is a historical overview of the development of the topic now commonly known as Laplacian Growth, from the original Hele-Shaw experiment to the modern treatment based on integrable systems.  ...  A trivial circular solution on the plane becomes an evolution of highly non-trivial Hele-Shaw disks on a surface. Hele-Shaw flows on curved surfaces were discussed also in [106] .  ...  In the Hele-Shaw context it means sweeping the Dirac measure out in evolution with the prescribed density function (see, [30; 33] ).  ...

Solutal convection in porous media: Comparison between boundary conditions of constant concentration and constant flux

2018 Physical review. E  
The latter model is found to involve a nonlinear evolution of CO2 composition and associated aqueous-phase density, which depend on the formation permeability.  ...  Dissolution is associated with slow diffusion of free-phase CO2 into the underlying aqueous phase followed by density-driven convective mixing of CO2 throughout the water-saturated layer.  ...  Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy funding to Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) under project  ...
