Birmingham Popular Maths Lecture - Explosive Bubbles!

They are particularly suitable for those studying Mathematics at A Level and we also welcome advanced GCSE students. Young people are welcome on their own, with parents or with a school group.

Full Event Details:

Anyone who has shaken a bottle of fizzy drink and then removed the lid knows that bubbles are explosive. There are many practical applications where bubble dynamics play an important role. This talk will consider three separate cases. First we will investigate cavitation which has a wide range of military, industrial and biomedical applications. Next we will examine dissolved air flotation which is a widely used process for drinking water purification. Finally we will consider the role of bubble formation in the modelling of decompression sickness. Bubbles are fascinating!

Institution Profile:

Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research at the University has broken new ground, pushed forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an impact on people’s lives.

We continue this tradition today and have ambitions for a future that will embed our work and recognition of the Birmingham name on the international stage.

Universities are never complete. They develop as new challenges and opportunities occur. At Birmingham we innovate, we push the frontiers of understanding; we ask new research questions, we turn theory through experiment into practice – because that’s what great universities do.
