David A Jacqmin
NASA Glenn Research Center

Dr. David Jacqmin is a Senior Research Engineer at the NASA Glenn Research Center. He has conducted research there since 1985. Dr. Jacqmin obtained his Ph.D. from Harvard University in Applied Physics in 1983. From 1983 to 1985 he was at Standard Oil of Ohio, where he modeled multi-phase flows in porous media. His current areas of research are computations and theory of wetting flow and of flow instabilities related to wetting, and large-scale computations of 3-D two-phase mixing flows. Jacqmin has more than 20 refereed publications including chapters in 2 books. His most popular papers are “Calculations of two-phase Navier-Stokes flows using phase-field modeling”, J. Comp. Phys., 1999, 198 citations, and “Contact-line dynamics of a diffuse fluid interface”, J. Fluid Mech., 2000, 138 citations. His best paper, “Very, Very Fast Wetting”, J. Fluid Mech ., 2002, shows how it is possible to coat fibers and flat surfaces (tapes, papers) at very high capillary numbers.
