The Many Facets of Foam Other events...
A public lecture by Denis Weaire, Emeritus Professor, School of Physics, Trinity College, Dublin and 2014 UWA Gledden Visiting Fellow.

The study of liquid foams has a long and fascinating history, involving for example the blind Belgian physicist JAF Plateau and the inspiring figure of Lord Kelvin in the 19th century. It remains a lively and wide research topic, and has spilled over into art and architecture, as well as many applications in industry. Professor Weaire will present a personal overview of the subject, ranging from basic mathematical questions to tomographic analysis of foam structures, which should interest a wide range of scientists and engineers, and be accessible to a wider audience as well.
