Abstract

We investigate the applicability of a mesoscale modeling approach, lattice Boltzmann simulations, to the problem of contact line motion in one- and two-component two phase fluids. In this, the second of two papers, we consider binary systems. We show that the contact line singularity is overcome by diffusion which is effective over a length scale L about the contact line and derive a scaling form for the dependence of L on system parameters.
