Could you tell me what is Mobility and and how to find the number for specific fluid, such like water. I read two paper, one set 1, another is quite small. In addition, I can not understand why the Helmoltz free energy can be difined as F(c)=c**2(c-1)**2, here c is the concentration Thanks a lot He

The problem is how to solve the sigularity of contact line. I adopted the Navier slip boundary, but it seems unsuited for my case for there was significant bulk velocity and the slip velocity was not matched to the bulk velocity. So I want to use phase-field method, it is reported that it can simulate the contact line movement naturally. I read the papers by Prof.Jamet and Dr Kim. I can understand some of them, but I do not know how to relate the parameters, such like Mobility, Free energy etc., to the real working fluid, say water and gas.

Free energy forces two phase separated. So, the bottom line is, we want Mobility as small as possible. cgisl likes this.
