Focus on a project

Instabilités 3D d'un film tombant

N. Kofman, S. Mergui, C. Ruyer-Quil

Un film liquide tombant sur un plan incliné se déstabilise pour former une onde solitaire composée d'une onde principale précédée de petites ondes capillaires. Ces ondes capillaires se déstabilisent à leur tour pour générer des motifs tridimensionnels. Les conditions d'apparition de ces instabilités 3D sont étudiées expérimentalement grâce à des cartes d'épaisseur de film obtenues par une méthode optique de type Schlieren.
