Surfactants and Stress Conditions at Fluid Interfaces
Surfactants are amphiphilic molecules that adsorb on fluid interfaces, where they reduce the surface tension. If the interface is moving, surface convection can distribute surfactant non-uniformly, creating surface tension gradients or Marangoni stresses. These two phenomena are the keys to understanding the stress response of surfactant-laden interfaces in multiphase flows.
