The dynamics of a topological change in a system of soap films
The study of soap films spanning wire frames continues to provide insight into both static and dynamic properties of foams. Experiments show that sufficiently small triangular faces shrink spontaneously, with their area varying with time as t0.8. The growth of the Plateau border that emerges after the collapse of the triangular face is initially linear, followed by an oscillatory relaxation to the equilibrium length. Its initial growth rate decreases with the viscosity of the liquid. We also...[Show more]
