Özet

In this study, the spreading profiles of the impinging liquid jets on the superhydrophobic/hydrophobic surfaces have been examined experimentally and predicted using experimental data. The liquid jet is sent on the flat and smooth hydrophobic surfaces, which have 93, 104 and 117 degrees contact angles, using the glass tube nozzle with the 1.75 mm inner diameter. The inclination angles between the jet and surface are altered in the range of 15-45 degrees. The predicted profiles compared with the experimental data. The spreading behaviour of the impinging liquid jet on the hydrophobic surface is clarified using the predicted equation. The inclination angle is a dominant parameter for the profile of the spreading liquid. The predicted equation is in a good agreement with the experiments. The front length of the spreading liquid takes the maximum value at a critical inclination angle.
