Physics: Prof. dr. D. Weaire, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland: The fascination of foams
|18 June 2009||FWN-Building 5111.0080, Nijenborgh 4, 9747 AG, Groningen|
|Speaker:||Physics: Prof. dr. Denis Weaire|
|Affiliation:||Trinity College Dublin, Ireland|
|Title:||The fascination of foams|
Ordinary aqueous foam provides a prototype for the general study of soft matter.
It displays interesting structures, one of which has been used in the Beijing
Olympics. As interest moves from static properties towards dynamics, current
research is focussed on rheology, particularly shear localization and the
significance of the Herschel-Bulkley relation.
