Researchers from the School's Institute for Multiscale Thermofluids (IMP) have revealed insights into how minute, yet powerful, bubbles form and collapse on underwater surfaces. The findings could lend valuable insight into damage caused on industrial structures, such as pump components, when these bubbles burst to release tiny but powerful jets of liquid.
