18 May 2016: Jet flows from angled nozzles


A late congratulations to second-year student Tom Chandler (Lincoln College, Oxford) for successfully presenting his poster Jet flows from angled nozzles at the British Applied Mathematics Colloquium 2016 that took place last month in Oxford. Tom's work studies the situation of fluid ejected from an angled nozzle and driven by gravitational forces. It turns out that there are some rather non-trivial issues concerning the angle that a liquid separates from a solid, and this deals with the interplay between geometry, surface tension, and gravity. Tom's poster forms part of his third year dissertation project and will continue to a summer research project at the Mathematical Institute.
