Abstract

This paper presents part of the larger study on water vapour condensation processes on solid surfaces. Strong relationship between the rapid growth of water vapour condensate and the roughness of the surface was an inspiration to undertake this study. A clear need was perceived to address the problem of assessment of the surface properties, selection of parameters for the analysis and the most appropriate experimental methods. The attempt was made here to review the existing methods of analysis of geometrical microstructure of surfaces. The paper presents experimental results obtained for glass surfaces.
