This is an entry for the Gallery of Fluid Motion of the 61st Annual Meeting of the APS-DFD (fluid dynamics videos). This video shows the collision and rebound of viscoelastic drops against a solid wall. Using a high speed camera, the process of approach, contact and rebound of drops of a viscoelastic liquid is observed. We found that these drops first splash, similar to what is observed in Newtonian colliding drops; after a few instants, the liquid recoils, recovering its original drop shape… Expand

The coefficient of restitution for air bubbles colliding against solid walls in viscous liquids
The motion of air bubbles undergoing collisions with solid walls was studied experimentally. Using a high speed camera, the processes of approach, contact, and rebound were recorded for a wide rangeExpand
Particle–wall collisions in a viscous fluid
This paper presents experimental measurements of the approach and rebound of a particle colliding with a wall in a viscous fluid. The particle's trajectory was controlled by setting the initialExpand
