Grahic Jump Location
The tube is initially circular and is lined with a film of uniform thickness; (a) As p is increased, the tube buckles (here into two lobes), and the film ruptures (b, c, d) to form a capillary meniscus, leaving part of the wall effectively dry. Opposite wall contact at s=π/2 is illustrated in (d).
Grahic Jump Location
Pressure-volume curves for n=2,Vl=π/5 and σ=0, 0.4, 0.6, 1. Film rupture is denoted by * and opposite wall contact by ○. Stable (unstable) solution branches are shown solid (dotted).
Grahic Jump Location
Pressure-volume curves for n=2,Vl=3π/5 and σ/σcrit=0, 1/2, 1,[[ellipsis]]7/2. Stable (unstable) solution branches are shown solid (dashed). The dash-dotted line shows the p–V curve for σ=0,Vfl=0.
Grahic Jump Location
(σ,Vl) parameter space, n=2. Insets show typical p–V curves for regions (i)–(v) of parameter space. Circles denote computed points, accurate to Vl±0.01; they are connected by straight lines.
Grahic Jump Location
Pressure-volume curves for n=4,Vl/π=0.15 and σ=0, 1, 2, 3, with σ increasing from right to left. Film rupture and reattachment are labeled by *. Stable (unstable) solution branches are shown solid (dashed). The centerlines of the pictures of half-lobes at various degrees of collapse correspond to their respective values of V.
Grahic Jump Location
(σ,Vl) parameter space, n=4. The typical p–V curves for regions (i)–(v) are as illustrated in Fig. 4. Circles denote computed points, accurate to Vl±0.01; they are connected by straight lines.
