Friction of foams

Friction induced by the solid surface roughness on flowing foams

Damping of liquid sloshing by foams

Damping of liquid sloshing by foams: from everyday observations to liquid transport

We perform experiments on the sloshing dynamics of liquids in a rectangular container submitted to an impulse. We show that when foam is placed on top of the liquid the oscillations of the free interface are significantly damped. The ability to …

Elastoplastic flow of a foam around an obstacle

We simulate quasistatic flows of an ideal two-dimensional monodisperse foam around different obstacles, both symmetric and asymmetric, in a channel. We record both pressure and network contributions to the drag and lift forces, and study them as a …
