Marangoni convection in an evaporating droplet: Analytical and numerical descriptions

International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer. 2016. Vol. 102. P. 445-454.
Barash L.Yu.

The stationary single vortex Marangoni convection in an axially symmetrical sessile drop of capillary size is considered. The detailed description of the fluid flows is presented for a wide range of contact angles, which takes into account the boundary conditions and the mass balance equation, without explicitly solving the Navier–Stokes equations. The analytical approach developed is compared with the results of numerical simulations and demonstrated to describe reasonably well the single-vortex Marangoni flows. This indicates the substantial role of the boundary conditions in the problem.
