Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Water drop impacts are performed on porous-like superhydrophobic surfaces. We investigate the influence of the drop size and of the impact velocity on the event. The Cassie-Baxter/Wenzel transition is observed to be a function of the drop size, as well as the outcomes of the impact or deposition process, which can be deposition, rebound, sticking, or fragmentation. A quantitative analysis on the experimental conditions required to observe rebound is provided. Our analysis shows that the wettability hysteresis controls the limit between deposition and rebound events. This limit corresponds to a constant Weber number. A survey of literature results on impact over patterned superhydrophobic surfaces is provided as a comparison.
