In a previous study M. Hameed et al., J. Fluid Mech. 594, 307 2008 the authors investigated the influence of insoluble surfactant on the evolution of a stretched, inviscid bubble surrounded by a viscous fluid via direct numerical simulation of the Navier–Stokes equations, and showed that the presence of surfactant can cause the bubble to contract and form a(More)
Mechanosensation is crucial for cells to sense and respond to mechanical signals within their local environment. While adaptation allows a sensor to be conditioned by stimuli within the environment and enables its operation in a wide range of stimuli intensities, the mechanisms behind adaptation remain controversial in even the most extensively studied(More)
We study the effect of surface tension on the incompressible Rayleigh–Taylor instability. We modify Goncharov’s local analysis [1] to consider the surface tension effect on the Rayleigh–Taylor bubble velocity. The surface tension damps the linear instability and reduces the nonlinear terminal bubble velocity. We summarize the development of a finite-volume,(More)
