Event Details

Air-liquid interfaces are involved in numerous applications in which they can control the flow dynamics. In this talk, I will first focus on interfacial effects in particle-laden flows. I will demonstrate the influence of individual non-Brownian particles on the stability and the drainage of thin liquid films of suspensions. In the second part, I will consider the sloshing dynamics of a liquid in a container. Indeed, when a glass of water is handled carelessly, the fluid starts to oscillate. However, beer does not slosh as readily, which suggests that the presence of foam at interface modifies the fluid dynamics. Using experimental results and modeling, I will show how the foam damps the sloshing dynamics though viscous damping.
