Droplet formation during temperature gradient driven flow.

Time = 118 Time = 127 Time = 135
Rendering is done by using SCIAN.

Increasing equilibrium contact angle (proportional to K) causes stream to break up

K = 10 K = 20 K = 40 K = 50
Rendering is done by using SCIAN.

Gravitational fingering ("drip marks") may be either wedge-shaped or straight-sided

K = 1 K = 7.5
