    Surfactant molecules adsorb onto the interfaces of moving fluid particles and are convected to regions in which the surface flow converges. Accumulation of surfactant in these regions creates interfacial tension gradients that retard the surface flow. In this study it is argued theoretically and...

    A derivation of the convective-diffusion equation for transport of a scalar quantity, e.g., surfactant, along a deforming interface is outlined. The direct contribution of interface deformation, giving rise to concentration variations as a result of local changes in interfacial area, is shown...
