Droplets on Inclined Walls

A droplet impacts an inclined surface.

When a droplet impacts an inclined surface, it spreads asymmetrically. The splash shape is largely elliptical, as researchers found when modeling such impacts over a range of inclination angles. Understanding such splash patterns is important not only for industrial applications like printing but in areas like forensic science. (Image and research credit: P. García-Geijo et al.)
