Evaporation from a capillary tube coupled with the dynamics of flow

This is the result of some quick research of mine, initially stimulated by the model of evaporation from soil by Lehman and Or.  I did not read them and I am annotating them here in order not get them lost.  Among those I found, I would start from:

The next two, written the same Authors, have a theoretical part and experimental part. They looks like rigorous but a little intimidating at first. So I would let them for a second reading. 
  • Polansky, John. 2016. “An Experimental and Theoretical Investigation of Evaporating Meniscus Dynamics and Instabilities.” Carleton University.
  • Polansky, John, and Tarik Kaya. 2016. “Stability of an Evaporating Meniscus: Part II--Experimental Investigation.” International Journal of Thermal Sciences 105: 75–82.
Finally, the third group of papers contains some experiments and, I think they are worth a reading"
  • Luzar, Alenka, and Kevin Leung. 2000. “Dynamics of Capillary Evaporation. I. Effect of Morphology of Hydrophobic Surfaces.” The Journal of Chemical Physics 113 (14): 5836–44.
  • Leung, Kevin, and Alenka Luzar. 2000. “Dynamics of Capillary Evaporation. II. Free Energy Barriers.” The Journal of Chemical Physics 113 (14): 5845–52.
  • Leung, Kevin, Alenka Luzar, and Dusan Bratko. 2003. “Dynamics of Capillary Drying in Water.” Physical Review Letters 90 (6): 065502.
 Not having read them, I do not know how much they account properly for the evaporation demand, if it is fixed or if it is varying. In the latter case the equation for the capillary should be coupled with the atmosphere and what I can suggest, is to give a reading to the second chapter of dr. Michele Bottazzi dissertation.
