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.

On Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 May, the Hewitt-Reese Spring School for Modelling Multiphase Flows took place in honour of two pioneering fluid dynamicists – the School’s Professor Jason Reese and Professor Geoff Hewitt of Imperial College London – who both passed away earlier this year.

The School’s Regius Professor of Engineering Jason Meredith Reese, who died suddenly at the early age of 51 on Friday 8 March, was an internationally renowned engineering scientist, respected academic and a valued mentor to many.
