Life of a smooth liquid sheet

  • CHRISTOPHE CLANET (a1) and EMMANUEL VILLERMAUX (a1)
Abstract

We report on experiments with liquid sheets formed through the impact of a slender jet on a small disc at high Reynolds number. When the interaction with the surrounding air is negligible, the sheet spreads out radially and remains smooth. The study extends over the whole life of the sheet, considering the dynamics of its formation and destruction and paying special attention to the stationary regime, in which the transition from sheet to drops occurs.
