Abstract : We present in this Letter a free-energy approach to the dynamics of a fluid near a nanostructured surface. The model accounts both for the static phase equilibrium in the vicinity of the surface wetting angles, Cassie-Wenzel transition and the dynamical properties like liquid slippage at the boundary. This method bridges the gap between phenomenological phase-field approaches and more macroscopic lattice-Boltzmann models.
