Abstract

Thermocapillary breakdown of thin horizontal layer of ethanol when heated from a localized heat source was studied experimentally. The influence of layer depth on the breakdown process was investigated. Evolution of the layer thickness in the heating point and deformation profile were being monitored and the critical thickness of the layer was evaluated using confocal technique. Pulsations of layer thickness over the heating area before the breakdown have been found.
