Speaker: David Quéré, ESPCI-Paris and École Polytechnique, France Date/Time: Friday 19th February, 2021. 4:00 pm GMT/11am EST Title: Acrobatics of non-stick droplets Abstract: Making drops non-wetting increases dramatically their mobility, compared to the situations we are used to. We’ll describe a few consequences of this statement, with a particular focus on jumping droplets: two non-stick drops can transfer their surface energy…
Speaker: Cath Noakes, University of Leeds, UK Date/Time: Friday 12th February, 2021. 4:00 pm GMT/11am EST Title: Infection transmission in the built environment – the interface of biology, fluid dynamics, design and human behaviour Abstract: COVID-19 has presented us with the most difficult healthcare and societal challenge we have faced in living memory. To understand the mechanisms of transmission we have…
Speaker: Amin Doostmohammadi, University of Copenhagen, Denmark Date/Time: Friday 5th February, 2021. 4:00 pm GMT/11am EST Title: Engines of life: self-pumping, bio-inspired fluids Abstract: Sperms, bacteria, and tissues, all work as engines of life converting chemical energy into motion. These systems are known as active materials and are capable of self-pumping with prominent role in biological processes, from organ formation to…
Speaker: Isabelle Cantat, Université de Rennes, France Date/Time: Friday 29th January, 2021. 4:00 pm GMT/11am EST Title: Visco-elasticity of Foam Films Abstract: Liquid foam exhibits surprisingly high viscosity, higher than each of its phases. This dissipation enhancement has been rationalized by invoking either a geometrical confinement of the shear in the liquid phase, or the influence of the interface viscosity. However,…
Speaker: Karen Daniels, North Carolina State University, USA Date/Time: Friday 22nd January, 2021. 4:00 pm GMT/11am EST Title: Fingers, fractals, and flow in liquid metals Abstract: A droplet of pure water placed on a clean glass surface will spread axisymmetrically, and a droplet of mercury will bead up into a spherical droplet. In both cases, the droplet is minimizing its surface…

Speaker: Hannah Kreczak, University of Newcastle, UK Date/Time: Friday 27th November, 2020. 4:00 pm GMT/11 am EST Title: Rates of mixing in models of fluid devices with discontinuities Abstract: The dynamics of mixing by cutting and shuffling are subtle and not well understood. We present mixing dynamics arising from fundamental models capturing the essence of discontinuous stirring with diffusion. When the…
The Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics is delighted to partner with the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge, the UK Fluids Network, and the Journal of Fluid Mechanics to deliver a regular webinar series on fluids-related topics. The autumn edition of the Fluid Mechanics Webinar Series will take place over ten weeks between 2nd October and…
