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
