Our unit, the laboratory of Fluid Mechanics and Instabilities (LFMI) has the pleasure to announce the following seminar :


“Role of surface rheology in film dynamics” 

By Benoit Scheid
(Université Libre de Bruxelles)
Wednesday 7th of March 2012 – 11:00 – Room CM011

Abstract :
The talk will discuss three problems where surface viscosity or surface elasticity can independently play a significant role in the dynamics of gas or liquid films. They are
(i) the dip coating process with surfactants,
(ii) the film pulling process of molten material and
(iii) the drainage dynamics of antibubbles.
