Interactions at the material surface is influenced by the wettability of the material. Wettability measurements are done to evaluate biocompatibility.
Surface tension of blood is an important characteristic when protective materials are being evaluated.
Cell-biomaterial interactions are affected by the surface properties of the material such as surface chemistry, wettability and surface roughness.
Advancing and receding angles should be measured as the low contact angle hysteresis is also a requirement for superhydrophobicity.
Rheology studies the flow and deformation of the fluid. Interfacial rheology studies the same for interfacial layers.
Studies show the influence of EOR agents on the reservoir rock wettability. Studies are not considering the reservoir conditions i.e. high pressure.
There are three commonly used wettability measurement techniques for oil reservoir characterization; Contact angle, Amott-Harvey, and USBM.
