Wettability of, and Oil Film Stability on Glass Capillaries as Basic Processes in Tertiary Oil Recovery

A study of immiscible liquid/liquid displacement on model systems, paraffin oil/aqueous surfactant solutions in glass capillary tubes led to the conclusion that flow and wetting properties cannot be treated separately. Even though there is a correlation between static and dynamic contact angles, the validity of this relation is restricted to relatively low surfactant concentrations.
