Foams: Structure and Dynamics

Isabelle Cantat, Sylvie Cohen-Addad, Florence Elias, François Graner, Reinhard Höhler, Olivier Pitois, Florence Rouyer, Arnaud Saint-Jalmes, and Simon Cox


Aqueous foams are studied both as materials with many applications, and as model systems for fields ranging from metallurgy to mathematics to biology. They are complex fluids with unique and unusual properties, exemplified as much by their multiscale structure as by the dynamical processes through which they evolve and even their dual liquid-like and solid-like behaviour. In this book, readers can easily find clear, up-to-date answers to their questions regarding the physical and physico-chemical properties of aqueous foams, explained using current knowledge of their structure, their stability ...
