A new paper explores the stability of droplets, bubbles and films in pores

PhD candidate Magnus Aa. Gjennestad (PoreLab/NTNU) and Senior Researcher/Professor Øivind Wilhelmsen (SINTEF/PoreLab/NTNU) recently published the paper “Thermodynamic stability of droplets, bubbles and thick films in open and closed pores” in Fluid Phase Equilibria. In this work, a thermodynamic description was developed to study the stability of droplets, bubbles and films of water in a pore. For a particular set of conditions,

The flying chain strikes again

Do you remember the YouTube video from Marcel and the relevant publications on the flying chain? Well, the flying chain strikes again! The group has produced a new theoretical model for explaining the phenomenon that included the effects of fluctuations along the chain length. This model, backed up by experiments and numerical simulations, successfully predicted

New article from Marcel Moura et al. on “Connectivity enhancement due to film flow in porous media”

Thin liquid films and capillary bridges can effectively enhance the connectivity of a porous medium, making it possible for the drainage of apparently trapped liquid clusters. This drainage due to film flow was recently characterized in a paper published in Phys. Rev. Fluids by PoreLab researcher Marcel Moura and collaborators. The experimental work has shown
