Cylindrical liquid bridges. (English) Zbl 1319.35183
Summary: We consider a cylindrical liquid bridge under capillary effects, spanning two horizontal plates and further bounded by a pair of parallel vertical planes. We explicitly formulate the volume-constrained problem and describe a numerical procedure for approximating the solution. Finally, a problem of finding the minimum spanning volume is considered.
