### Infiltration and evaporation of small hydrocarbon spills ...

2014-12-1 · The mathematical model is based on a mass balance equation which relates the rate of change of the total liquid mass, m l, to the potential rate of evaporation, E po ≥ 0 [kg m − 2 s − 1]: (1) d m l d t = − π R d 2 E p o where R d is the drawing radius, and t is time. The total liquid mass has two contributions: (2) m l t = m s d t + m in t where m sd is the mass of the sessile droplet ...
