Application of the Fluctuation Model of Dissipation to Beaker Film Flow

  • L. J. Campbell


Although the striking phenomenon of He Il film flow over a gravitational barrier has received much experimental attention, there has been no theory which could successfully account for the following observations: the temperature dependence and magnitude of the flow rate; the distribution of the dissipation and the variation of the film thickness over the flow path; the formation of droplets; and the dependence of flow rate on barrier height, level difference, and substrate.
