Foams are common fluid entities of our everyday life. Our group is, among others, involved in ESA projects on the foam generation and stability under microgravity . On Earth, the gravitational drainage dries the foam such that an interface between … Continue reading
Recent articles [1-3] emphasized the interest of 3d printing for scientists. In addition to pedagogical activities, during which students experience 3d models, scientific research can benefit a lot from such a technique. Scientists may build complex structures and may dream … Continue reading
The GRASP is participating to the FOAM-S experiment [1,2], which aims to study the influence of microgravity on the foamability of liquid solutions. The experiment benefited from a flight opportunity to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2009 during the stay … Continue reading
The GRASP is involved in the development of the FOAM-C instrument for studying bubbles and foams on the International Space Station (ISS), within the ESA MAP project entitled “Hydrodynamics of wet foams“. The new equipment is currently tested in parabolic … Continue reading
After being selected for the APS March Meeting 2012 held in Boston, our picture of foam/soap bubbles is now shared around the world. Credits D.Terwagne.
