NEW WORK ON PLASTIC RAFTS RELATED TO ICE MELANGE

Bubble Rafts

 

We use bubble rafts for multiple different studies.

---------------------------------------------------------------

 

FRACTURE STUDIES

 

Most recent studies – using a bubble raft to look at material failure under expansion. This series of movies shows a bubble raft being pulled apart under various conditions.

 

This initial movie was our first one that showed fracture:

For this series of images, the bubble size ~0.7mm and the barriers are moving at 1.3 cm/s

 

This first set is for monodisperse systems:

http://physics.uci.edu/~dennin/images/movies/5_4_3000_arc.avi   (4.58MB)

 

http://physics.uci.edu/~dennin/images/movies/7cm_4cm_3000_arc.avi   (5.14MB)

 

http://physics.uci.edu/~dennin/images/movies/9cm_4cm_3000_arc.avi   (5.84MB)

 

This next set is for polydisperse rafts. The images are the same scale.

This next set of movies applies an oscillatory compression/expansion to the raft:

CHANNEL FLOW

 

We also study bubbles in channel flows. These are very preliminary results.

GENERAL FOAM FLOW

There are movies of two different types of two-dimensional foams:

bubble rafts: Couette flow    movie 2  (animated gif version)     bubble raft: voronoi representation of parallel flow

 T1 event in a monolayer foam   



Electroconvection

1.  MODULATION EXPERIMENT MOIVES:
In these images, for a sense of scale, the stripes all have a wavelength on the order of 30 microns.
The first set of movies are real time (links take you take avi versions of the movies):

       Unmodulated Electroconvection                    Modulated electroconvection                        After modulation
 
 
 

2.  DOMAIN GROWTH

In these images and movies, for a sense of scale, the stripes all have a wavelength on the order of 30 microns.
Close up image of zig and zag rolls with a domain wall in N4 system.

Two movies of domain growth of zig/zag rolls (movies represent approximately 30 minute of evolution):

movie in N4 system     movie in I52 system    (differences discussed in electroconvection section)

3. SPATIOTEMPORAL CHAOS:

Shown here is a false-color, demodulated image of a single snapshot of the amplitude of zig rolls during electroconvection in I52.

This is an example of spatio-temporal chaos and demonstrates the spatial disorder in the amplitude.


Langmuir Monolayers

The following is a picture of a DPPC monolayers that are used for studies with annexin proteins. The dark domains are a condensed
phase and the white areas are a liquid expanded phase.
