Abstract

When a droplet of silica particles suspended in water dries out on a horizontal surface, one can observe an emerging pattern of interconnected stripes of sedimented mass. From experimental observations and numerical simulations we find that the mechanism for the pattern formation is a combination of meniscus shape perturbations caused by pinned particles and a reorganization of the evaporation driven flow.
