Evaporation of unstable polymer jet in electrospinning


This study is focused on mathematical modeling of drying unstable polymer electrospun jet. The developed model includes nonuniformity of polymer concentration over the jet cross-section due to the evaporation. The parametric study for influence of mass transfer coefficient on jet motion and fiber deposition is performed.
