Abstract

In this paper the influence of gravity on the solidification of a drop formed at the end of a rod is analyzed. Although similar studies (but ignoring gravity effects) already exist, a theoretical analysis including gravity effects allows one to improve the experimental procedure to measure on Earth relevant properties of crystals (mainly the receding contact angle <£,) which are of importance in shaped crystal growth processes. One of the main results here obtained are the shapes of the sohdified drops, which are strongly dependent on the value of <#>,. Therefore, fitting theoretical shapes to experimental ones is a wav to perform accurate measurements of <^.
