Mathematical modelling of the overflowing cylinder experiment

Abstract:

The overflowing cylinder (OFC) is an experimental apparatus designed to generate a controlled straining flow at a free surface, whose dynamic properties may then be investigated. Surfactant solution is pumped up slowly through a vertical cylinder. On reaching the top, the liquid forms a flat free surface which expands radially before overflowing down the side of the cylinder. The velocity, surface tension and surfactant concentration on the expanding free surface are measured using a variety ...
