    Instability of advancing contact lines and liquid film breakup in rivulets

    Numerical approach with OpenFoam integral film model and VOF

    On 8 February 2019 Anne Gosset (University of A Coruña) will hold a guest talk on the modeling of dewetting phenomena in liquid films subject to body or shear forces, resulting in a fingering of the contact line and subsequent formation of rivulets. These rivulets can affect the performance of systems such as anti-icing of aircraft.

    Using MRI to understand the interplay between structure, composition and rheology in complex fluids

    Guest talk by Melanie M. Britton (School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham)

    Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is widely used by chemists to acquire information on the structure, interactions and dynamics of molecules. When the NMR signal is acquired in the presence of magnetic field gradients, the variety of chemical and physical information available by NMR becomes spatially-dependent, resulting in images which map and quantify chemical composition, physical environment and molecular motion.
