Regime map of droplet formation and flow pattern in the channel for two different capillary numbers and three different flow rate ratios at fixed : (a) jetting, (b) droplet formation with necking or thread, [(c) and (f)] droplet formation, and [(d) and (e)] parallel flow.
(a) Droplet flow regimes as a function of flow rate ratio and capillary number (Ca) at viscosity ratio and (b) representative outcomes for the three regimes at and , 1/14 and 1/7, respectively. Symbols in (a) indicate (◻): PF, (△): DC, and (◇): DTJ. Data at different regimes are shown in different colors only for visual guidelines.
