Abstract

The comments of Dieter Bothe on the ‘litmus test’ proposed in [Y.D. Shikhmurzaev, Eur. Phys. J. Special Topics 229, 1945 (2020)] as a simple way of assessing adequacy of mathematical models of dynamic wetting are examined and shown to be erroneous with regards to two of the flow configurations described in the ‘litmus test’ and missing for the remaining two. Therefore, the conclusions of Bothe’s paper [D. Bothe, Eur. Phys. J. Special Topics 229, 1979 (2020)] should be regarded as completely unfounded.
