Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Drops Falling on a Surface

Molecular dynamics simulations are used to study the dynamics of drop splashing on a solid surface.  In agreement with experiment, we observe that splashes occur only in the presence of vapor.  We are investigating how the flow in the vapor produces the stress which tears the drop into fragments, and the effects of surface wettability patterns on the final state.
