Description: This course will provide the fundamental knowledge required for students to analyze, model, and design systems based on interfacial phenomena, with applications including wetting, enhanced oil recovery, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, microfluidic devices, phase change heat transfer, and even everyday food and drink. After completing this course, students will exhibit a strong understanding of surface tension and surface energy, adsorption and adhesion, surface-tension-driven flows, capillarity, capillary instabilities, contact angle, fluid spreading, wetting of textured surfaces leading to superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity, and self-cleaning surfaces. Cross-list: MECH 487. Recommended Prerequisite(s): MECH 200 (or equivalent) and MECH 371 (or equivalent) Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for MECH 587 if student has credit for MECH 487.
