Stability of Liquid Bridges between Unequal Disks under Zero-Gravity Conditions

Physics
The stability, of axisymmetric equilibrium shapes of a liquid bridge between two coaxial disks of different radii under zero-gravity conditions is investigated. The stability regions have been evaluated for different values of the ratio of the disk radii in terms of the dimensionless parameters which characterize the length and the volume of the bridge. It has been found that disk radii unequality radically changes the upper boundary of the stability region. The analysis of the shape of marginally stable equilibrium surfaces has been carried out. Relationships between the critical values of the parameters have been deduced for some particular cases, which are of special interest for the materials purification processes and growing of single crystals by the floating zone method: for typical values of the growing angle for semiconductor materials and for liquid volumes close to that of the cylinder having a radius equal to the mean radius of the disks
