The interaction between droplets and solid surfaces is of great importance in industrial applications, biochemical processes, and fundamental material research on surface wettability. In this work, a three-dimensional spectral boundary element method has been employed to investigate the dynamics of a viscous droplet falling under gravity influence to micro-patterned solid surfaces. The dynamics of the droplet are investigated under the influence of the Bond number and the topological features of the substrate.
