A three-dimensional (3-D) model of spreading and solidification was used to investigate the sequential deposition of two tin droplets for different offset landing. Numerical simulations predicted the shape and size of the landing tin droplet as it spread over a previously landed splat. The model applies a fixed-grid Eulerian control volume to solve the fluid dynamics and energy equations. The Volume of Fluid (VOF) algorithm is used to track the free surface deformation. The comparison of the simulated images and experimental photographs validated the prediction of the model.
