In a new study published in the journal Physics of Fluids, a team of researchers has found that a few layers of foam can significantly dampen the sloshing motion of liquid. Just a few layers of bubbles are enough to significantly decrease the height of the waves in a sloshing liquid. Image credit: Takeaway / CC BY-SA 3.0. To test the damping power of foam systematically, the team, led by Prof Howard Stone of Princeton University, constructed a narrow...
