Soap films are cool!

Evaporation is known to cause cooling, much like perspiration. Physicists have measured the temperature of soap films to show that they can be up to 8°C cooler than the temperature of the environment.

Evaporation of liquid coating a fiber

We investigate theoretically and numerically the diffusion-limited evaporation of a liquid deposited on a fiber in two configurations: a sleeve and a axisymmetric barrel-shaped droplet. For a sleeve, the local …
