Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A model is presented that yields accurate growth rates throughout the range of bubble face numbers in realistic foams. Combined with number and volume distributions of F-bubbles in aged, statistically self-similar foams, macroscopic coarsening rates can be computed.
