    In the general framework of coatings performed by deposition of a liquid film on a substrate and evaporation of a volatile solvent in air, this proposal focuses on geometries with a moving contact line or a meniscus. It concerns specific situations corresponding to small substrate velocities, when significant evaporation takes place in the meniscus and impacts the flow (evaporative regime in dip-coating-like configurations). It addresses the general question of the impact of flow dynamics and heat/mass transfers, on the dry deposit obtained during the evaporative coating. The main objectives are to get an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the dominant phenomena, and to get quantitative predictions, to infer the coating process parameters needed to get the required specifications of the dry deposit.

    Both experimental and modeling approaches are planned to fulfill these objectives. Experiments will be performed on the one hand on model systems (polymer solutions and nanocolloidal dispersions). Besides investigations of model systems, we also propose to focus one part of our efforts through this program in the investigation of functional coatings obtained in the evaporative regime starting with dispersions of rare earth oxydes provided by Solvay. One R&D scientist of Solvay is involved in this proposal.

    From the modeling point of view, and following previous works, the challenge is be to develop dynamical models taking into account the hydrodynamics in the meniscus, the coupling with the gas phase, and including the concentration dependent properties of the system. The objective is to describe (and then predict) the impact of hydrodynamics in the bulk and meniscus on the dry deposit. It concerns especially the following questions: may hydrodynamics and mass transfer explain the occurrence of a periodic regime that induces the formation of regular patterning on the dry film (stick-slip)? Which phenomena drive this periodic regime? (presently an unsolved question). For colloidal dispersions, we propose to use continuous models describing the transition from the dispersed state up to the dense colloidal assembly through continuous models but showing a divergence at the close packing transition (such as the mutual diffusion coefficient, the osmotic pressure, the viscosity, etc).
