Collaboration in PoF on turbulent mayonnaise

By | News & Updates, Recent Stuff | No Comments

I collaborated recently with Dennis Bakhuis and Sander Huisman and others at Physics of Fluids in this cool project making mayonnaise by brute force and not relying and surfactants or stabilizers, only *very* vigorous steering. Of course the resulting emulsion is totally metastable and not tasty at all… 😅

Nevertheless, it was a titanic task for Dennis Bakhuis and Pim Bulle to measure the droplet size manually with a microscope immersed in this high turbulent flow to capture thousands of water-in-oil and oil-in-droplets and to realize that there’s an asymmetry that we fail to understand! So I’m looking forward for more.
