C. Raufaste and S. Cox (2013) Deformation of a free interface pierced by a tilted cylinder: variation of the contact angle, Coll. Surf. A 438: 126-131.We investigate the effects of the contact angle ?w, and the angle of inclination ? on the interaction between an infinite cylinder and a free fluid-fluid interface governed only by its surface tension. We describe a numerical method to calculate the deformation of the interface, and use it to validate a theory for the force on the cylinder based only on knowledge of the interface shape where it meets the cylinder.authorsversionPeer reviewe
