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

Collection of Disks Mimics Earthquakes: “Continuously sheared granular matter reproduces in detail seismicity laws

A 2D array of disks under stress replicates several statistical features of seismic phenomena. This is an interesting reading by S. Lherminier, R. Planet, V. Levy dit Vehl, G. Simon, L. Vanel, K.J. Måløy and O. Ramos on how 2D disks under stress mimic earthquakes. This article is published in PRL, featured in Focus on
