  • Water impacting on superhydrophobic macrotextures

    Anaïs Gauthier, Sean Symon, Christophe Clanet, David Quéré; Nature Comm., 6, 8001, (2015) It has been recently shown that the presence of macrotextures on superhydrophobic materials can markedly modify the dynamics of water impacting them, and in (...)

  • Turning bacterial suspensions into a "superfluid"

    H.M. Lopez, J. Gachelin, C. Douarche, H.Auradou, E. Clément; Phys. Rev. Lett., 115, 28301, (2015) The rheological response under simple shear of an active suspension of Escherichia coli is determined in a large range of shear rates and (...)

  • The force of impacting rain

    D. Soto, A. Borel De Larivière, X. Boutillon, C. Clanet and D. Quéré, Soft Matter, 2014, 10, 4929. Drop impacts are difficult to characterize due to their transient, non-stationary nature. We discuss the force generated during such impacts, a key (...)

  • Texture-driven elastohydrodynamic bouncing

    Thibault Chastel, Philippe Gondret and Anne Mongruel: Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Volume 805 October 2016, pp. 577-590 We investigate in detail the dynamics of bouncing of a fluid-immersed solid sphere onto a textured wall at moderate Reynolds (...)

  • Numerical Bifurcation Methods and their Application to Fluid Dynamics : Analysis beyond Simulation

    H.A. Dijkstra, F.W. Wubs, A.K. Cliffe, E. Doedel, I.F. Dragomirescu, B. Eckhardt, A.Y. Gelfgat, A.L. Hazel, V. Lucarini, A.G. Salinger, E.T. Phipps, J. Sanchez-Umbria, H. Schuttelaars, L.S. Tuckerman, U. Thiele, Commun. Comput. Phys. 15, 1 (...)

  • Microrheology to probe non-local effects in dense granular flows

    M. Bouzid, M. Trulsson, P. Claudin, E. Clément and B. Andreotti, EPL, 109 (2015) 24002. A granular material is observed to flow under the Coulomb yield criterion as soon as this criterion is satisfied in a remote but contiguous region of space. (...)

  • Giant ripples on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko sculpted by sunset thermal wind

    Pan Jia, Bruno Andreotti, and Philippe Claudin, PNAS (2017) Abstract: Explaining the unexpected presence of dune-like patterns at the surface of the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko requires conceptual and quantitative advances in the (...)

  • Faraday wave lattice as an elastic metamaterial

    L. Domino, M. Tarpin, S. Patinet, and A. Eddi ; Phys. Rev. E 93, 050202(R), (2016) Metamaterials enable the emergence of novel physical properties due to the existence of an underlying subwavelength structure. Here, we use the Faraday (...)

  • Effect of friction on the peeling test at zero-degrees

    S. Ponce, J. Bico, B. Roman; Soft Matter, 11, 9281-9290, (2015) We describe the peeling of an elastomeric strip adhering to a glass plate through van der Waals interactions in the limit of a zero peeling angle. In contrast to classical studies (...)

  • Droplets move over viscoelastic substrates by surfing a ridge

    Karpitschka S., Das S., van Gorcum M., Perrin H., Andreotti B. & Snoeijer J.H., Nature Comm., 6, 7891, (2015) Liquid drops on soft solids generate strong deformations below the contact line, resulting from a balance of capillary and elastic (...)
