Our experimental laboratory is designed to perform fluid mechanics experiments.
Instability of a circular hydraulic jump
The movies below, taken with Phantom V310 by Hamid Abderrahmane, show a spinning polygonal hydraulic jump in glycerin-water solution.
Visualization with fluorescent dye. The view is from below the plate.
Quantum dynamics of fluid droplets bouncing on a vibrating bath
The movies below, taken with Phantom V1610 by Francisco Borja, show droplets of silicon oil bouncing on a vibrating bath of the same fluid.
