Figure 6

The normalized rate of evaporation J/J(0), calculated numerically via OpenFOAM, as a function of the Bond number Bo for various substrate inclination angles α. Panels (a–d) correspond to \({\theta }_{c}=\pi /6,\,\pi /3,\,\pi /2,\,{\rm{and}}\,2\pi /3\), respectively. The insets show the percent difference δ between the results presented in (a)–(d) and the analytical predictions (see Fig. 5). In panels (b–d), the high-Bond-number data that correspond to unrealistic droplet shapes are not shown.
