Thesis type EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH

Description Soap films are fascinating objects with extraordinary properties, which may be exploited in a variety of technological applications and inspire new engineering design. In this view, understanding the phenomena regulating their generation from soapy solutions and their dynamics is key for engineering design. This thesis focuses on the proper understanding of the physical-chemical aspects regulating soap film formation, and on the set-up of an experimental apparatus for film generation and dynamics inside channels. Experimental tests will be performed in different conditions, to understand how different parameters affect their behaviour. The results will finally allow a better understanding and control of the soap films towards engineering exploitation.
