    Project Details


    This project aims to produce new insight into fluid systems containing free interfaces, such as boundaries between fluids, or air and water, known as multi-phase systems. This class of problems includes flows containing multiple bubbles, such as mixed subterranean flows, or fluid layers, such as the stratified ocean.

    We aim to combine a newly developed type of function theory designed to study multi-phase systems with a modern branch of approximation theory used to capture fluid behaviour. We will then use these results to explain physical phenomena including the spread and interaction of groundwater in porous soil, or the effects of interfacial energy dissipation on ocean vessels and structures.
