Video Transcript for Dynamic Contact Angle Measurements:
Dynamic contact angle measurement is the term given to the quantification of advancing and receding contact angle. The advancing contact angle is associated with wetting fresh, previously un-wetted surfaces.
The receding contact angle is associated with the wetting of a previously wetted surface, as the liquid front recedes. The roll-off angle is the inclination of a surface, at which a droplet rolls off subject to several different factors including surface properties of the solid and liquid, rate of tilt and volume of droplet.

Powder rheology and flow testing methods can provide a range of insights into predicting whether a powder will cake, flow, crumble, bridge/arch or rathole. While simple test methods such as angle of repose can provide a quick measurement, they lack significant detail and sensitivity to fully describe how a powder will behave in different scenarios.
Temperature, humidity, applied external stresses, static charge, particle geometry and physical dimensions can all play a role in the final observed bulk powder handling behaviour, sometimes with unexpected results.
