Abstract

top
Motivated by recent experiments on the electro-hydrodynamic instability of spin-cast polymer films, we study the undulation instability of a thin viscoelastic polymer film under in-plane stress and in the presence of either a close by contactor or an electric field, both inducing a normal stress on the film surface. We find that the in-plane stress affects both the typical timescale of the instability and the unstable wavelengths. The film stability is also sensitive to the boundary conditions used at the film-substrate interface. We have considered two conditions, either rigidly attaching the film to the substrate or allowing for slip.

  29. Note that Yc, Kc and Kfg are determined by elasticity, the viscosity does not play a role. However, Kfg can exist only if η ≠ 0, else, the problem is a static problem and Kfg is not defined.
