We developed a method to actuate oscillation of a sessile bubble in a fluid to produce steady streaming within the fluid. This method is based on time-periodic control of the wettability of the bubble by electrowetting. Jet velocity is proportional to oscillation amplitude and is greatest at natural oscillation frequencies. Analytical and numerical analyses indicate that the jet is produced by steady streaming in the Stokes layer.

    The long-wave asymptotics of the secondary flow that arises after a steady, spatially periodic flow loses stability are studied when one of the periods tends to infinity and the rate of base flow along the longer period is equal to zero. It is shown that if certain non-degeneracy conditions are...
