The motion of a liquid-fluid interface over a solid surface – i.e. wetting or dewetting – is a fundamental feature of a very wide range of natural phenomena and engineering applications, yet predictive modelling of dynamic wetting phenomena in practical situations remains problematic. This talk will consider models based on sharp interfaces captured by boundary-fitted finite element analysis and lattice Boltzmann models featuring diffuse interfaces. The performance of the models will be discussed in terms of applications such as coating, printing and flow in porous media.
