Effect of Surface Tension on Two-Dimensional Free Surface Flow
F. Guechi and H. Mekias
 
Abstract: Water or fluid flowing on a horizontal half-plane can either detach from the surface when reaching the boundary or it can continue flowing on the opposite side of the half-plane. The latter phenomenon is called the "teapot effect"; it has been the subject of many investigations over the past decades. Here a two dimensional flow exhibiting a teapot effect is considered without neglecting the surface tension. The problem is solved numerically via a series truncation method for various values of the Weber number, á. We find solutions for greater than or equal to 10 and no solutions for less than 10.
