Wetting of Natural Fibers

Sara Schellbach has published her first technical paper. The paper’s title is A novel method for contact angle measurements on natural fibers, co-authored by Prof. Sergio N. Monteiro and Prof. Jarek Drelich, and will be included in one of the upcoming issues of the Materials Letters journal. In this study, a novel method of contact angle measurements is presented that reduces the flaws of previous methods such as drop-on-fiber and tensiometric methods. The method relies on calculation of the contact angle from a spherical liquid meniscus of the liquid column formed in between two aligned natural fibers separated by a small spacing.
