    • Rodless Weissenberg Effect 

      Soto, Enrique; Enriquez, Oscar R.; Zenit, Roberto; Manero, Octavio (2008-10-08)
      The climbing effect of a viscoelastic fluid when stirred by a spinning rod is well documented and known as Weissenberg effect(Wei et al, 2006). This phenomenon is related to the elasticity of the fluid. We have observed ...
    • Superheated water drops in hot oil 

      Soto, Enrique; Zenit, Roberto; Belmonte, Andrew (2009-10-16)
      Drops of water at room temperature were released in hot oil, which had a temperature higher than that of the boiling point of water. Initially, the drop temperature increases slowly mainly due to heat transfer diffusion; ...
    • Surface Texture and Pulsation Due to Balloon Bursting in Different Liquids 

      Soto, Enrique; Belmonte, Andrew (2008-10-08)
      We study the instabilities occurring during the burst of an air balloon in a liquid. These instabilities are typical for the deformation of an interface between two fluids of different densities, similar to fingering in ...
