Wettability plays a vital role in many fields. In this paper, the shortcomings of current experimental measurement of dynamic wetting characteristics are described. The dynamic wettability of droplets on the simplified triangular wave micro-structure surface is studied by volume of fluid method. The results are compared with the dynamic wettability of droplets on the smooth surface and the rectangular wave micro-structure surface. The results show the similarities and differences of the motion characteristics of droplets on smooth surface and different micro-structure surface. Under the action of volume force, the droplets are first deformed and then moved. The droplets move as a whole on the smooth surface. But the droplets partially slip on the micro-structure surface, and the three-phase contact point on the left side does not move.
