This usually involves high losses on the latter side. Scattered troops are taken prisoner; to escape from the camps and to return to the correct side causes diﬃcult logistical problems and is risky as well. Among the early studies of the dynamic contact angle, let us mention the papers by Friz  dealing with complete wetting, by Hansen & Toong  on the relationship to hydrodynamic forces, and several experimental papers by Dussan [1976, 1979], Dussan et al. [1974, 1982, 1991] and Chen et al.
Dussan  has shown, however, that the ﬂow distant from the contact line, where almost all ﬂuid mechanical measurements are made, is quite insensitive to the form of these boundary conditions. This is a rather discouraging conclusion, since it indicates that the mechanism of motion of the contact line cannot be elucidated by macroscopic measurements. Here again, it is necessary to return to the microscopic, molecular description and to throw overboard the familiar concept that the ﬂuid interface is a sharp interface.
This gives rise to thermal interface convection (also referred to as thermocapillary convection or Marangoni convection). That eﬀect has been known since the 19th century and is attributed to Lord Rayleigh and to Marangoni [1865, 1871]. If for any reason the interface tension along a ﬂuid interface varies, a shear force from regions exhibiting low interface tension to regions exhibiting high interface tension results, which gives rise to a corresponding ﬂuid ﬂow. Marangoni convection is the reason why dirt particles move rapidly from the Fig.
