Near-impact behaviour is investigated for a solid body approaching another solid body with two immiscible incompressible viscous fluids occupying the gap in between. The fluids have viscosity and density ratios which are extreme, the most notable combination being water and air, such that either or both of the bodies are covered by a thin film of water. Air-water interaction and the commonly observed phenomenon of air trapping are of concern in the presence of the two or three thin layers and… CONTINUE READING
