    Particle deforming the fluid-fluid interface around it

    The illustration shows a sphere moving to the left of the picture while the lower fluid’s viscosity is large compared to that of the upper fluid. The interfacial shape can be parameterized by a height function. Image: Dr. Aaron Dörr

    CSI Calendar Image June 2015

    A rigid particle driven along an interface between two fluids of different viscosities assumes a tilted orientation and deforms the fluid-fluid interface around it.

    CSI Calendar Image April 2015

    Using Molecular Dynamics simulations, we can study the complex physical background of the hydration behavior for biologically relevant processes. This is done by separately calculating not only the entropic and enthalpic contributions, but also properties like the heat capacity.
