Droplets and bubbles with phase transitions

Midwest Mechanics & The Mechanics Seminar Series

Event Details

Friday, April 19, 2019
11-11:50 a.m.
Professor Detlef Lohse, Chair of Physics of Fluids in the Department of Applied Physics at the University of Twente, will describe and explain several simple experiments in which phase transitions in and around single droplets and bubbles play an important role. The talk will cover vapor bubbles and freezing and boiling droplets, on cold and hot surfaces, and in cold and hot surrounding liquid, showing beautiful and often unexpected phenomena.
