Europhysics Letters 83
We have explored the patterns of drainage in a bamboo foam, i.e. a foam consisting
of an arrangement of parallel soap films with equidistant spacing. We find an intriguing variety
of such patterns, both static and dynamic. All involve the formation of drainage channels at the
wall of the column, which are variously arranged and in some cases rotating and oscillating.
