Abstract: The classical condition for the contact angle of a phase interface at a container wall is generalized to include both anisotropy and kinetics. The derivation, which does not involve an assumption of local equilibrium, is based on a capillary force balance, a dissipation inequality representing the second law, and suitable constitutive assumptions.
