PRL Editor’s suggestion - about dew condensing

Dew condensing on an inclined, grooved surface rapidly forms large drops that roll quickly to the bottom for collection. Collecting dew could provide people with clean, fresh water in areas (...)


Baromorphs: pneumatic shape morphing elastomers

Although bending a sheet of paper into a cylinder or a conical hat is quite easy, bending the same sheet in two simultaneous directions is not possible without crumples. However Nature is full of (...)


Study shows glass surfaces retain memory

A study published today has revealed that glass surfaces can retain a memory of the direction of flow of the glass in its past liquid state. This surprising conclusion is the result of a (...)

A unified model of ripples and dunes in water and planetary environments

Orencio Duran Vinent, Bruno Andreotti, Philippe Claudin and Christian Winter, Nature Geoscience (2019)
Subaqueous and aeolian bedforms are ubiquitous on Earth and other planetary environments. However, it is still unclear which hydrodynamic... (...)


Delaying Ice and Frost Formation Using Phase-Switching Liquids

, Rukmava Chatterjee, Daniel Beysens, and Sushant Anand, Adv. Mater., 1807812 (2019)
Abstract:
Preventing water droplets from transitioning to ice is advantageous for numerous applications. It is demonstrated that the use of certain phase-change ... (...)


Review article: On the diverse roles of fluid dynamic drag in animal swimming and flying

R. Godoy-Diana & B. Thiria. J. Roy. Soc. Interface 15 20170715 (2018)
[doi:10.1098/rsif.2017.0715]
When a body moves through a fluid, drag is often thought as a dissipative source that has perpetually to be overcome to sustain motion injecting... (...)


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 understanding ... (...)
